Flapper Chic















Image 1, 2, 3 , 4

From the beauty of Bakelite accessories and bobbed hair, to hip flasks and speakeasies, there is something so wild about the idea of a flapper girl. In old photographs and illustrations, flappers always appeared to be effortlessly at ease and elegant. Underneath that cool exterior was something truly racy indeed. These were the first woman to flaunt far more than just their ankles in public. They questioned the idea of what was to be expected of a lady... and had a hell of a time doing it too. If you are longing for a bit of art deco chic may we suggest some of the beauties above. Simply click on the images or a number for a link to the items. Have a great weekend everyone and don't forget to tip your bootlegger!
