Ooh, lovely! There's loads of stuff about but what sort of budget are we looking at? WHat's your body shape and colouring?

Loads of stuff on EBAY if if you have time to wait for delivery.
Some will deliver really fast anyway.
Probably the cheapest way to do it as well.

I went it a 20s party years ago, when I was skinny! I wore a poly silk slip from marks, which I trimmed with black fringing at the hem and also about 3 inches above.

Feather boa, long string of beads/pearls, t bar shoes, cigarette holder, hair slicked back, headband, red lips.

Have fun!

Watch The Great Gatsby.
I went to a 20s party on NYE. I wore a black beaded dress from phase eight sale, a grey feather hair clip from accessorise (try EBay) and a long necklace.
I have a short bob which fitted right in but if you have long hair, a head band will look great.
