If you’ve been a long time reader of Sydne Style you probably know that whenever I throw a party I always have a theme. I’ve done ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s for past birthdays.

ttF Fashion Staple: Bejeweled Peep Toes
To celebrate the end of her 20s, my friend had a Roaring 20s themed birthday. I adore costume parties. But since this one was at The Parlour Room, not a private residence, I decided not to go as all out as last year’s Great Gatsby fete. Instead, I slipped into what used to be my mom’s fringe dress. There’s one at H&M right now that’s incredibly similar. I added a vintage-looking beaded bag, and a faux fur bedazzled with a brooch for good measure. While this month’s shoe staple isn’t necessarily 1920s, it certainly added an extra dose of celebratory sparkle.
