I would be remiss to say it wasn't the paradigm of forward thinking. Oh yes, women wore knee length skirts, smoked in public, wore copious amounts of make up... but most importantly, were able to vote in the U.S.
As many know, it was the era when fashion became free of the strict moral concepts it once had; so as previously mentioned, the length of skirts went higher and higher, and sleeveless dresses entered the scene in a profound way. A distinct characteristic of high fashion during the 20's were the dropped waistlines; you'll notice that many of the fashions of the 20's are blocky and boyish-- this was exactly the point, to free the form and unite comfort and freedom of movement, while still embracing femininity.
So if you haven't guessed, today's outfit is a rip-roaring 20's inspired outfit!

Well, happenstance made all the make up work out in the end... but then, what will I do with my hair? The style of hair in the 20's is very short and bobbed. I didn't feel like chopping off my locks just yet... so I experimented. My hair is naturally very curly, so I just started rolling and pinning. I grabbed a piece of lace, and a vintage brooch my mother gave me, and pinned all that to my head, too.
I had several strings of glass pearls that I never had the chance to wear for the longest time. I remember making them with the intention of one day incorporating more 1920's flair into my wardrobe. Well, every pearl has its day!
