1920s Shoes, Hats & Accessories

With my curves I can't really 'do' twenties style (not that it makes 20s fashion any less fascinating to me), but I can sure as heck lust after the amazing shoes and accessories of the era.

1920s shoe styles in particular look surprisingly modern and chic - you wouldn't even particularly think "retro" to see any of these styles in a shop today. Indeed, the period seems to be providing inspiration to shoe designers quite a lot at the moment. My new Mary Janes (courtesy of Mr. Matin) are the "Charleston" by Hotter (below centre), which clearly show 20s influences.

  2. I'm with you - I can't really pull of 20's style with my figure either, but I really wish I could:( But those shoes would look great no matter what, though! I've been searching for some t-straps for ages, so I'll have to check out the Clarks ones:)

  3. Oh wow, so that's the era of shoes that I love! I knew I like the Mary Jane style, but I didn't actually know when it came out. So I'd be wearing my 50s dress with 20s shoes, and I wouldn't care, because I LOVE those shoes!! Simply goregous. ^__^
