Dream Dress: Beaded Flapper Dress


Writing about a dress I'll never be able to wear is a special form of torture. Despite this embellished flapper dress being totally unsuitable for anyone with hips, it's completely divine. I've spent the last week reading The Great Gatsby and I think I've been inspired by all things jazz. Just hand me a champagne cocktail and take me dancing.


The beading is gorgeous, and it's not just going to come apart after a bit of a shimmy. I've swung this dress around in the shop and it's pretty heavy duty. The nude shade isn't particularly easy to wear, but on the right person this is going to look sensational.


If you are that right person, this beaded, draped, netted piece of sexiness is £135 from Joy. Plus, you'll get free delivery AND if you hurry they'll send you a free weekend bag worth £45. If you're in need of a little styling inspiration, check out the trailer for The Great Gatsby. I can't decide if it's going to be brilliant or amazing, but goodness me the dresses are exquisite.

  1. Stunning! And I never would have guessed it came from Joy (not that I don't love Joy). What did flappers with hips wear I wonder?

  2. I love at my delicious peachy booty, then at this gorgeous dress, then back at the junk in my trunk, then scowl.

    But it is beautiful.

    1. Oh, my ass would look more than ridiculous in it. But I still want it, to hang on the wall or something.

  3. Look, not love.

    I was clearly distracted.

  4. Oh my.

    I'm probably scrawny enough to fit this dress, but not sure if nude would suit my almost-opaque complexion? I want it anyway!

    1. DO IT! At least try it on and make the rest of us jealous.

  5. Oh lovely! :)

    To answer Frances' question - wannabe flappers with hips would wear those highly attractive girdles or long line (but not restrictively boned) corsets beneath their dresses. :)

    1. So if we had all that gubbins, we could wear this fabulous dress?

  6. Hot damn! That dress is amazing. If I didn't have ginormous hips and bum I'd put it straight on my wish list.

    1. Drop waists are not our friend.
