Dresses for the Ball

Continuing from the previous post, here are some more ideas to inspire looks for
MAY FLY BALL house party #3 ...when the Prohibition went to Harlem

From the movie Idlewild:

Won't it be awesome to come dressed in this? You can drop $350 for a close look-alike by Sue Wong, shop vintage stores in your area or Forever21. Alternatively, you can mix & match a DIY feather skirt with a bustier top to recreate this look. The hairstyles are a great source of inspirations as well... chignons and buns accented with hair ornaments

From the movie Dreamgirls:

You can find Flapper dresses at Forever21. The look will not be complete without a short bob and a feather to the side to recreate the signature flapper look.
