Flapper Fashion

The Prohibition Era flask in a garter belt was optional.  Bobbed hair was mandatory.  Beaded wrist purses carried art deco compact mirrors for checking rouged knees between dances.  Scalloped hemlines embodied the defiant freedom Flappers embraced with fashion. 

“In his blue gardens men and girls came and went like moths among the whisperings and the champagne and the stars.”   The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald.
