How to Accessorise for a 1920s Party feat. Tamara Harrison




HOW TO DRESS FOR A ROARING 1920S PARTY



How far in advance do you start outfit planning when you have an event on the horizon?  A week, two or even more?

I'm only a little bit excited to be attending the Long Table Lunch, hosted by Breast Cancer Care WA on April 3rd.  This weekend I began panicking a little as I figured I'd left the outfit side of things a bit late. And there's a theme (which makes it more exciting, but sometimes a little tricky too).  The theme is "The Roaring 20's" - how fabulous does that sound?


After doing a little (a lot) of research into the kind of dresses the ladies wore in this era, I decided that I was approaching it all wrong.  So many of the dresses back then were simple LBDs and it was the accessories that made the look.  Beaded headdresses, crystal-encrusted chokers and cuffs, long strings of pearls are synonymous with the era.

So I made a decision to wear a simple shift dress (who doesn't already have at least one of these in their closet?!), and accessorise like crazy to channel the 1920's theme.

My first port of call was local designer Tamara Harrison, who is know for her intricate jewellery and coveted designs.  

Tamara's jewellery is perfect for event wear, and even more perfect for a Roaring 20s party.  Her sparkling cuffs and headpieces are beautifully original and real heirloom pieces.

When I told Tamara about the Long Table Lunch she was keen to do something special to support Breast Cancer Care WA.  So, she kindly offered to donate one of her beautiful creations as a silent auction prize (you can see a sneak peek of the piece in the first photo).  AND, if you order something before 31st March using the code BEATCANCER, you'll get a staggering 50% off!  

So, if you haven't got your outfit ready for the Long Table Lunch get onto Tamara's website and secure yourself some unique bling.  And if you haven't got your tickets to Breast Cancer Care WA's signature fundraising event, you can still grab them here.  

It's going to be a hugely fun event, with a five course luncheon from some of WA's top chefs.  On board to deliver the gourmet delight to 750 people are;
  • Chase Weber from The Standard
  • Luke Foyle from Bivouac
  • Evan Hayter from Arimia
  • Patrick O'Brien from West Coast Institute
  • Bob Rawlins from Innovations Catering
  • Morgan Keyte from Mosmans Restaurant, and
  • Chris Taylor from Frasers.
There will raffles and competitions to win hundreds of prizes on the day, plus lots more.

Breast Cancer Care WA are a charity that provides emotional, financial and practical support to those affected by breast cancer.  Formed in 2000, their team of professionals work holistically with their clients to create tailored solutions at every step of their journey.

  4. For something like this I would start planning my outfit as soon as I knew I was going! I am typically not a fan of dress up but the roaring '20s would be so much fun! Plus I have the perfect Lisa Ho that I could wear!

  5. How sexy is the 1920's. They all look so classy and fun. I've never been to a 20's function but I think I could really make it pop.
