while she isn't my all time favorite flapper, I prefer the mad cap fun of Clara Bow to Louise's cool elegance, I do love her style. Lately, she's been a big inspiration. My latest bob is the most Louise like one yet
And I recently got a ver Louise-ey 1920s day dress from Etsy seller Sew Vintage Seamstress. This dress is a repro made from a vintage pattern and it looks totally authentic.
The inspiration was partly this simple dress worn by Louise in The Show Off.
I ordered the dress in July, being talented Sew Vintage gets lots of orders, so I've been planning the outfit for months and putting the various elements together for awhile. The shoes are from American Duchess and very comfy and just like the 1920s originals.
The gloves and bag I got from Adeline's Attic and they are authentic 1920s.
I also git a really pretty velvet cloche from her that really only works with a Louise type Bob. You can't have a lot of hair under this hat.
And since every outfit needs a canine or feline element a vintage poodle pin from fellow vintage blogger Chronically Vintage's Etsy shop.
