The Paris Wife

3/08/2012

I just finished reading The Paris Wife by Paula McLain, and I loved it. The 1920's seems like such a glamourous period in history, especially Paris. I thought the book painted a beautiful and tragic love story between two people who couldn't make their marriage last, despite being madly in love with one another.

1920's fashion seems to be peeking through in a lot of places these days. From frilly blouses, to lots of beading, to mid-calf length skirts, it's all very vintage inspired. I love this image of a page from McCalls magazine in 1920.

I love the muted yellow colour of this dress, and the beading is absolutely gorgeous.

Ruche has a lot of great dresses, which are much more affordable that the runway looks. I like the look of the paler pastels, but I'm also drawn to bright spring colours like the coral/red dress below.

I have always been a fan of 20's style, and I've been excited to see a nod to it this spring!

The Paris Wife has been on my reading list...it might have to be next!
