Art Deco Inspired Outfits

 As I was sat watching Agatha Christie's Poirot, I noticed that many of the women wore a shirt done right the way up to the top with  an oval brooch where the top button sits. I loved this look so I ordered some brooches online, and tried the look out and I really like it.

I wanted to try and really get an Art Deco feel to this outfit. I choose the shirt because I have seen similar burgundy colours worn by many women from this era, which lead me to believe that it was one of the fashionable colours. The brooches they wore were often oval with stones and pearls in them, to me this brooch resembled one from around this time.

While I was looking at brooches I came across this beautiful Gothic bird skull brooch. I thought it would look wonderful in this style. It has a shape and border resembling those which I saw, but it would give an edgier more modern feel to it.

As I was impatiently waiting for the brooches I had ordered to arrive I found this watermelon pinned to an old jumper and thought that the colours went really well with this blue shirt. I think this is a modern interpenetration of  the style.
