In the 1920s, flappers were young women who dressed in a certain style (typically a bob, a thin columnar dress reminisced of Greek fashion, ruby red bow lips and the high heels with the chunky soles that were the fashion of the time). They were a new sort of woman—more liberated than their sisters, more apt to having a good time and flaunting their new sexual powers. It was a sign of the times.
I’m dressed in a sweet little dress that doesn’t quite fit the flapper image. (I see it being a little more 50s-influenced than 20s.) That doesn’t mean a flapper in the 21st century—a postmodern flapper—couldn’t wear it. Made by Jill Lemon, this cute ensemble comes complete with lacy skirt and tights, cuffed three-quarter length sleeves, and cute bowed gloves.
The skin is another from the Julie series by Mallory Cowen. I’m having a hard time taking them off with their sweet full bowed lips and glowing skin. I wear a cloche hat over a modified bob from Bubbles Clawtooth. The bob, a haircut originated from “bobbing” a young woman’s low-tied ponytail so the back hair was in an even line with the front, gets a reworking into a longer style here.Tiffy Vella’s vintage beads mix in well with the outfit.
Finally we have a pair of “Victorian” ankle boots from Elven Dreamscape. With the close attention to the stitching and laces, the boots are a piece of virtual art.
