1920s themed party which dress?!

I'm desperately needing help. I have a party to attend next Saturday and as usual have left things far too late.

I don't have time to hit the shops so I've been hunting online for something suitable within a tight budget. I have found the following dress. Would this do? And how would you accessorise it? The hairdresser is booked to style my hair but I think I need to find a head band or something.

I also found this one not so obviously 1920s though was of the style at that time.,default,pd.html

I'm 5'6 size 12 and blonde if that is any help.

Any view point great fully received.

The green dress is lovely, very 20's style, wear it with a headband or flower in your hair and strapped shoes.
The other one looks like a badly fitted dressing gown IMO.

Thanks Faded I've ordered the green dress. Don't know what I was thinking with the second one blush

I agree with faded and with regards to the second one I thought it looked more like a dressing gown too. The green one is gorgeous!

I love that first dress, such a bargain as well! I went to a 1920s party on NYE and it was so much fun. I wore this headband, pearl jewellery and a fur stole.

Thanks pixie and mum, I feel a lot more confident now! I've had a look at the link and have ordered the head band, I just need to find a stole from somewhere... smile

Ruby Shoo have a sale and beautiful shoes for around twenty pounds that would be perfect for a twenties party. My iPad won't let me put a link on.
