So last weekend we had a big birthday party for my friend Kris. The theme was The Great Gatsby and Cabaret and I have always visioned what I would like to wear at a party like that. I had to search a long time to find something that matched my vision though. But here it is - a vintage sequin showgirl body! It is a sparkling vintage dress in silver and black.They are not very easy to come across and even on Etsy I had to look for a while to find some to choose from. But I did find one at ZoomVintage and it is totally covered in sequins and it the pattern in front reminds of a tie which makes me think of the cigarette girls in the 1930:s and 1940:s. The feather in my hair is a headpiece from around the 1920:s in lovely condition. I found it in the vintage flea market in Solna last year that I mentioned before. I will publish some photos of it in color in the future. But I really couldn't wait - I want to show you some of the gorgeous pictures that Michaela Lindén took on this night.

Who doesn't want a two piece mariner's outfit with high waisted pants? And who doesn't want it in the most kitschy pattern ever? Yes, it is yellow and it has palm trees, a chick and a parrots on it. Just lovely!
So okay, I can imagine a few persons were this outfit wouldn't be a must in their wardrobe, but I can assure that is the case for me now! I found this in an antique and vintage fair in Solna last year. It was the first one at this location and unfortunately I don't think any more will take place there. Lucky for us we have the vintage fair in Stockholm from Bakåt:framåt twice a year, next one coming up in September! And Solna still has the Megaloppis - a huge vintage market which also comes around every autumn and spring. Now the date is set the 5th and 6th October! Don't miss is for the world is you are in Stockholm - they have clothes but also a lot of great china, furniture and collectible items. I can't wait!
