When Ella Macedo, our customer from New Zealand, shared a photo of herself wearing one of our gowns at her engagement party – everyone here at Blue Velvet Vintage was blown away by how well she pulled off her deco inspired “Old Hollywood Glamour” look. Ella ordered our 30s style blue chiffon evening gown for her cocktail party in June where, in her part of the world, it was the dead of winter!
” We had the open fires going and old favourites like Sinatra, BB King and Ella Fitzgerald playing. There was no theme, but it was a cocktail party and since it was our party, I thought it was a great excuse to get dressed up!”
Ella said she chose the blue gown because of it’s classic shape and color. We definitely think she made the right choice!
Ella not only dresses up in vintage style glam for special events – this classy swing dancer and hairstylist wears vintage inspired fashion every day! Shortly after her successful engagement party she started looking for an outfit for her boss’s Great Gatsby themed party. And, once again, she turned to Blue Velvet Vintage for her perfect party dress!
From Ella- “…I was aware of the fact that the classic flapper styles would not suit my figure…”
A very smart lady! It’s always good to know which silhouette is the most flattering for your body type.
So instead of going for the straight, sheath type style so popular during the 1920s, she opted for our silver beaded chiffon gown, and accessorized it with long necklaces and a headpiece (that she bedazzled herself!) to complete her 1920′s Gatsby inspired look.
And Ella actually took home the prize for Best Dressed! Well deserved, for sure.
