   All this luxury! Can't wait to get dressed like a silent movie star, since the hottest news of this season is undoubtedly the 1920s come back and I love it. Dropped waists and straight-line chemises, feathered head bands, pleats, opera gloves and cloche hats. However, for the Spring/Summer 2012 season the 1920s style was only adopted by the evening wear. Still, we have a lot daywear of this decade (including cloche hats, which is not exactly my cup of tea) to see in the Fall/Winter season. Or, if you can't wait until next season, I have found plenty of these at etsy and ebay and I'm sure I'm going to find a lot more after a small search... Till then, feel free to share with us your 1920s findings.
