Her headdress/veil is a dream! 

This dress is one of a couple that is peaking my interest right now.  I have an hourglass shape, on the pear side, and mermaid style (I’ve been reading) supposedly is best for my shape. Good thing I like that! It’s hard to tell in pictures, But I’m hoping that’s an antique white, and not too yellow or gross. I may end up having this made for me, rather than buy it.

myriadflesh said: Aww!! Congratulations on the engagement! I'm really enjoying your blog as it is, and I could only imagine that wedding dresses would improve it! Have fun with all the wedding planning. :D

Thanks Dear! You are so sweet! I plan on having fun with all the planning, after all, anything that has to do with the 1920s, I already have TONS of references :)

And on the note of randomness, I bring you my favorite picture of my sister and I as babies (We are twins), circa mid 1987.
I find it hysterical that we have the exact same expression in this picture, haha!

My posts are a little scattered today, but that’s because I’ve had all of the previous postings on my mind :)

Harry Houdini circa 1900.
I never noticed as a child, but he is quite the dish! I probably discovered that around 14 years old, :)

Harry Houdini, c. 1918, vanishing Jennie the Elephant at the Hippodrome in New York.
Harry Houdini was a childhood idol of mine. When I was 7, I wanted nothing more than to be a magician (“and artist too!” I would always say, haha!), and I would turn cardboard boxes into box tricks, and mom’s scarves into vanishing scarves. I remember the Tony Curtis version of Houdini as my favorite as a kid. So in honor of my childhood hero, I present some of my favorite photos of him :)
