Evie O'Neill--this look is inspired by a scene where Evie goes out for a night of partying. She's a party girl and I love her (I posted about her a while ago here).
The dress is described as "a silver bugle-bead dress that shimmered over her body like rain." This dress is from the 50s, but I think it fits the bill, plus... sexy! I modernized her headache band, coat, and Mary Jane heels in a way that I hope still feels 20s inspired. I added lots of makeup, including that super sexy deep red lipstick, a strand of pearls long enough to double up, and an atomizer. I love atomizers, so I was psyched that I got to include one in this look. Finally, Evie has a "tile mesh purse". This is a vintage mesh purse that makes my heart flutter. It's so pretty that I kind of want it to ask me out.

Henry Bartholomew DuBois IV--his look is described as "eccentric" and his hat is "perched on his head at an angle that hinted at mischief--or at least impertinence." His look is too fun not to attempt to replicate.
Quotations from page 421 of the ARC.

Now, imagine that vest is open and the man wearing this outfit had a "perpetual smirk of amusement". Putting together this look, even if it is on the eccentric side, made me really sad that men don't dress like this more often. I'm going to have to change my dream of owning a coffee shop to owning an upscale bar.
I'm going to make an effort to get some great 20s inspired pieces into my wardrobe. Do you have a favorite decade for fashion?
