1920s Advertising || Vintage Pompeian Beauty Ads

These beautifully illustrated vintage Pompeian Beauty ads may not feature the most modern of messages (the panicked “Do you look as young as your husband?” is my personal favorite) but the artwork is lovely, with dreamy deco details, vintage makeup and hair.

1920s Style DIY Wedding

From the bride:

We wanted our guests, many who were traveling from out of state, from Canada, and other parts of the world, to enjoy themselves and not worry about a thing and have a blast. What better way than sharing our love for craft cocktails, whisky, speakeasies and jazz?

We really found ways to integrate the 1920’s style into a modern hotel, blending two eras that we love through the decor, craft cocktails, flowers, and our outfits. I made most of the decor myself, Pinterest and Michael’s are really great, and tried to capture the spirit of the speakeasy.
