Just Jazzy

          Well I know I've been M.I.A. for the past week, but that was due to the fact that it was raining non stop and I've been studying for finals. Anyways, back to blogging like a fiend! Now that award season is over I figured I would touch on my favorite trend that glided across the red carpets. The Twenties inspiration for many of the dresses was absolutely amazing. Long have I loved the jazz era and the ground-breaking style that came from it. These are just a few of my favorite gowns from the past few award shows and fashion shows.

Flower Child

Dress: Target; Shoes: Borrowed; Belt: Thrifted
               Mondays are the worst, but 70 degree weather is perfect. When I bought this Rodarte for Target dress two years ago I was in love with the lace pattern and it's vintage feel. Who knew the sisters at Rodarte would become so popular? I'm glad I snagged this piece while it was available because now I can say I am one of the Rodarte crew, along with stars like Dakota and Elle Fanning. 
              There is just something about wearing a dress that makes me want to go on long walks and imagine that I'm in the English countryside pining over my own Mr. Darcy. Instead of flying across the pond, I'll make do with the flower-covered-hills near my dorm.
