Best of the Highstreet: Flapper Fashion

Ok, so it wasn't quite Cannes, but the Irish premiere of The Great Gatsby was a pretty swanky affair. (Jump straight to my review of the film - and don't worry, it's a spoiler free zone!)

The Great Gatsby movie premiere


The invite said vintage, so I did my best with what I already had in my wardrobe - this pink Warehouse dress is vaguely 20s (I also featured it here), especially teamed with the headpiece I took home from The G, and a fur collar that used to be part of my mum's old winter coat (sorry Mum!).
But one look at the full on ritzy, glitzy flapper style at the premiere made me wish I'd made a little  bit more of an effort. In an ideal world I would have loved to have rocked up in any of this little lot.

ONE  These gorgeous Cai heeled metallic sandals are the very thing for trying out the moves of the Charleston. The heel height looks just about do-able, too.
TWO With its detailed embellishment and beading, this Miss Selfridge flapper dress looks decidedly more high-end than high-street.  
THREE I'm a little bit in love with this black, white and gold necklace - the cord reminds me of one of my current favourites.
FOUR For a more modern take on the 20s trend, this bejewelled dazzler of a top from Choies would look great, teamed with jeans and those high-heeled sandals.
FIVE Crystal encrusted earrings with a dangling pearl? Bling me up Scotty! And unlike Daisy's, these Miami ear-rings from Monsoon are costume, so you can afford to really pile it on.

SIX  Part of Topshop's Limited Edition collection, this sequinned black number will make sure you shine!

SEVEN Deco and decadent, at £55 this rose gold and crystal necklace is a little pricier than your normal highstreet find, but boy does it make a statement.
EIGHT This beaded clutch looks vintage, but is an absolute steal from New Look.
Have you caught Fitzgerald fever and is anything catching your eye?
