What a beautiful vintage travel inspired shoot we have today, sent in from Gideon Photography and brimming with loveliness.... There's so many great travel-related visuals tied to the 1920s and art deco era (we've featured some cool ones before, like these vintage travel poster save the dates) and this styled shoot incorporates several uber-pretty vintage [...]

I came across these incredible 1920s headbands and accesories by Gibson Bespoke recently and couldn't wait to share them with you guys. (It looks like they also have an Etsy shop with the same collection in American pricing here: WillowMoone: Gibson Bespoke). But yup, I had to post these designs because... wow. Just wow. The [...]
Looking for 1920s wedding makeup inspiration? Pretty easy now, right? I love this brave new world of Pinterest and Tumblr and Google image search, and the ease with which you can find and collect the perfect images (back in MY day we had no such tools, young ladies! AND we had to walk ten miles [...]
I'm a fan of everything about this gorgeous art deco wedding inspiration shoot from Housley Photography. Lovely details through and through, especially the absolutely incredible hair and makeup on that perfect model! I've always been a fan of the dark-eyed flapper look on your wedding day, and this shoot features the perfect images to swoon [...]

Hello all! Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend so far. I'm very excited about tonight's return of one of the most stylish shows on television, Boardwalk Empire. This is a show that started out looking pretty, but being not-so-great (in my most humble of opinions), but by the end of last season it was [...]
Well, the trailer for Baz Luhrmann's long-awaited (or long-dreaded, depending on your tastes...) version of The Great Gatsby is here! That is... well, it is interesting. Interestingly scored, interestingly cast... there will certainly be lots to look at, style-wise. The Great Gatsby is a perennial favorite for vintage-wedding inspiration, and there is certainly a lot [...]
We're back! Sorry for the delay in posting, it has been a crazy few weeks. But here we are. And tonight we've got a lovely set of vintage wedding photos courtesy of Michelle McMurray, founder of Wedding Story Writer. These images are scans of actual wedding photos from the 1920s and 30s, and there are [...]
Many thanks to shoot coordinator and stylist Sarah over at Sarah Giggar Makeup Artistry for sending this beautiful 30s inspired (and overall inspiring) shoot our way. I just loved everything about these photos, starting with the location: the historic Hotel Florence building in Missoula, Montana. One of my favorite things about this shoot is how [...]
Today's post is all about the deep, abiding love we have for that smoky eyed, pouty-lipped flapper look. Sugar and spice is a perfect embodiment of the flapper style, and I absolutely adore modern variations on the dark eyes and red lips of the era. Like this photo: gorgeous green smokey eyes, just bitten lips, [...]
Hope everyone had a lovely weekend! This evening I've decided I'm starting a new category, Art Deco Hollywood, because the silver screen is (of course) a fantastic source for 1920s wedding ideas. And also, frankly, because I could look at photos of stars of the 20s-40s pretty much all day. And now I will share [...]
How gorgeous are these art deco headbands, vintage style hairpieces and accessories from designer Johanna Johnson? I love how they're unmistakably vintage-inspired, but there's nothing fussy about them. They'd pair so beautifully with 1920s style gowns, of course, but I'm hard-pressed to think of a bridal look they wouldn't complement. Welcome to LovelyTown. (click the [...]
What an incredible vintage themed wedding, sent to us from photographer Marzena Wasilewska. Ebony & Andrew's 1920s style wedding is an amazing, inspirational example of what commitment, creativity and craftiness can bring to a wedding. They created a lot of the details themselves and these are obviously two very talented (and genetically blessed!) people. Their [...]
Inspiration shoots are all the rage these days in the wedding world, but sometimes they can fall flat, missing that certain something (an actual wedding?). Not this collection of gorgeous shots from Rosie Parsons (with help from other talented vintage wedding planners and designers). These gorgeous photos feature art deco inspiration galore, and more importantly: [...]
Something old, something new, something borrowed, and... Something Blue No 2 Fascinator from Lo Boheme. A little deco, a little nouveau, all gorgeous.
