Posts in the egyptian revival category

Some design styles hold a dear place in my heart.  Egyptian revival happens to be one of them.  There is just something really magical about this reinterpretation of a time that was so rich and different aesthetically.  The graphic nature of most of its design components also strikes a cord, as it always manages to look fresh modern and classic.  This dress and it’s insane border is nothing short of amazing.

Find it and other incredible vintage pieces on Omnia Vintage’s website or check out her amazing pieces in person at the Brooklyn Flea all summer long!

Inspired partially by the silhouettes of the 20’s, which I happen to be quite fond of, the drop waist dress is making a big splash this fall.  Not particularly flattering on all figures, it’s kind of a hard look to sell, but it does pack a punch and can make a very interesting statement, applied correctly.  The following shots capture the feeling and look of the drop waist dress, but I am in reality wearing a skirt (you can find here) and top.  For fall this look would look great with a boxy jacket added as a layering element (denim?), and with opaque tights.  But for now, let’s remember its still August, and this particular day was pushing 90 degrees.

Standing in front of this motorcycle made me feel like a rock star?
Checking around the bend for the bike’s owner.
He/she wasn’t around so I decided it would be ok to keep standing there.
Drop waist, see? see?
