Style me edition: 1920's inspired

Hey beautiful people!  Guess what!  Today is my ✰Bornday✰ It's truly a blessing and I'm so thankful to God for allowing me to see another year of life ☺
Okay back to the style me post.  I was at one of my favorite thrift stores when I came across this dress.  The first thing that crossed my mind as I looked at is was the movie Harlem Nights.  This dress is very reminiscent of the roaring 20's and early 30's so I had to try and capture the style to the fullest. 
The dress is very similar to the one pictured it has a bit of a dropped waist but unlike the one above mine has more of a cinched waistline the pleating or ruching and the collar is spot on for this duplication. 




I tried to stay true to the roaring 20's with my locs as well. I used lock loops™ to create curls and then used hair pins to create a faux bob parted on the side. This neat side part shows off my dark bouncy curls. My make up is fairly simple on my lips is MAC's Rebel.
 

Pearls would have been best but since I don't own any used this layered necklace that has white stone accent beads purchased from the Goodwill.  I tried to go a bit dramatic with the accessories by adding several gold tone bangles most I found thrifting but the large one is by Vince Camuto purchased at Dillards (similar one here).  The ring and earrings I purchased at NY&CO several years ago. The simple black pumps are from Kenneth Cole.
I had a great bornday and an awesome time putting this look together thanks for reading feel free to comment and let me know what you think or give me some ideas for my next inspiration. 
See ya next time!
