This coming Friday I’m attending an Electro Swing party here in Toronto and I also happen to be one of the judges for the “Most Dashing Dolls and Dapper Dudes” contest representing the Toronto Vintage Society. My partner in crime is the lovely Irene from Petite Plus, Meow and we really excited to be helping out and cannot WAIT to see what everyone will be wearing. Don’t forget that the winners get to take home a gift certificate from Damzels, who sells some wonderful vintage inspired clothing.
It’s going to a really fun night filled with great music and awesome clothes from the 1920s thru to 1940s. So in preparation for the event (or really ANY Electro Swing Event), I thought I would share some clothing images from 1920s-1940s to help you get inspired!
Cloche Hat, dark cupid bow lips, bobbed hair. VERY 1920’s here!

Now what I have just briefly shown you is only the tip of the iceberg there are so many looks you can wear from the different eras, but these looks should hopefully get you at least started. Happy shopping!
