Look of the Day: Roaring 1920's

Recently I have become deeply fascinated with films and the stars of the 1920s. So I figured why not try out the sexy, flapper look. It doesn't have to be Halloween to channel your inner Clara Bow or Jean Harlow.

So here is my look from dinner last night (I didn't get to waving my hair)

Vintage Stylized Films - Holidays 2012

Recently I have notice that there are several films coming out during the holiday season this year that are period throwbacks. The two that I am most interested in are 
The Great Gatsby (which is very 1920s) and the Gangster Squad (a very 1940s crime drama)

Poster and Trailer (Below)

The Second Film: The Gangster Squad 
(Which was supposed to be released in September but because of a controversial scene involving a theater shooting,  it was pushed back to December.)

This is the first poster released with the trailer below
