Prohibition party, London: Going Great Gatsby

Frock and Frill dress at Amazon, £125
I’ve come to the conclusion that I really should have been born in the 1920s. The glamour, glitz and fabulous parties would have suited me down to the ground – I decided after my visit to the Prohibition party held this time at the gorgeous Bloomsbury Ballroom.
In true fashionable London style, the venue is revealed just two weeks before the event. The next one is going to be on June 1, and I would highly recommend that you go. There was cocktails in teacups, a spot of roulette, burlesque acts, live music and lots of dancing; but the best bit was the dressing up. Every guest there had made a fantastic effort with their outfits, from full length sparkling gowns, to sequinned encrusted skullcaps for the women and braces, hats and snappy suits for the men.
I wore my Phase Eight sparkling dress from last season, which came complete with 20s-esque flapper, beaded trim hem…
The best 20s outfits I have seen on the high street are available from Frock and Frill at Amazon. Think dropped waists, beaded detail, scalloped hems… actually, you don’t need to imagine – here are the cream of the Frock and Frill crop (from £55), on sale at Amazon now. Perfect for the next Prohibition party, and perfectly on trend to wear again…

    The first dress is amazing, it's so pretty! I didn't think i was in to the 1920's style, as I've never been a fan of the dropped-waist but i think i've been converted! Can't resist the pretty embellishments x
