I must confess: the writing muse has abandoned me today. Or maybe I'm just feeling lazy. :P Whatever the cause, I'm rather stumped on ideas, so I thought I'd share some neat pictures of an interesting decade in fashion, the 1920's.

To be honest, the 1920's is not my favorite era, fashion or otherwise. On the surface, at least, it seems like everyone was abandoning all morals and tradition, carelessly wasting so much that they plunged the next generation/decade into financial ruin. Women's fashion of the 1920's really reflects the carefree, loose lifestyle.

But it wasn't all so bad! So many people have the notion that all women wore back then were short, beaded, and tasseled dresses. (Downton Abbey viewers, of course, will know better than to think that!) Indeed, most women wore elegant evening dresses and everyday clothes that, although shorter and freer, were certainly not flapper-like! And look: I'll prove it!
I love the elegant petal-like layers on this one!
Everything here is so perfectly pink!
I normally wouldn't like this color scheme, but they work well with this floral motif.

Do you enjoy any 1920's fashion?
Do you have a favorite vintage era?
Would you like me to cover some Downton Abbey fashion in the future?
