Five Foot Two, Eyes of Blue

Five Foot Two, Eyes of Blue

Five foot two, eyes of blue.
Oh, what those five feet could do!
Has anybody seen my gal?

Turned-up nose, turned-down hose
Flapper? Yes sir, one of those
Has anybody seen my gal?

Five Foot Two, Eyes of Blue

My grandmother was five foot two with eyes of blue and could pull off a flapper look pretty well. I should probably scan in her photo to prove it. She had the finger waves, the flapper gowns, the long beads, though she was a bit more modest than the ones we see in movies. For example, this dress from Spooky Mistwallow, that she is featuring at this month’s Genre, would be quite a bit sexier than my grandmother would wear. With a low cut back and glittering embroidery, it’s a great dress for a modern flapper. Add long beads from Maxi Gossamer and t-straps from Cerberus Noel plus seamed stockings from Bax Coen, and it’s a wickedly alluring look.

Voshie Paine is offering this blushing skin with ruby red lips at Genre for this month’s art deco theme. I added a little beauty mark from Launa Fauna to up the allure of the skin with its sexy liner. My bob from Elikapeka Tiramisu is the perfect cut for the newly liberated lady of the 20s, especially in this bright red.

But could she love, could she coo!
Cootchie-cootchie-cootchie coo!
Has anybody seen my gal?

  1. My grandma was a flapper too, quite the firecracker and still is :) She will be 102 in December if she is still with us (hopefully) and still mentally sharp so I guess that lifestyle had other benefits as well :D
