Good-morning, kittens and dawgs! Let me point out that if you voted in the April 1st BoTBs, then you’ll find the outcome listed in my side menu on a sticky note. Thank you joining me for today’s edition of All Things Vintage!
The roaring 20s was full of mischief, but I am 99.9999% sure my grandma or great-grandma was NOT a flapper girl.
For a long time, I thought flapper was some sort of fashion statement from the 20s. However, it was more than this, it was a lifestyle. Flappers girls were a new kind of women who wore short skirts, bobbed hairdos, makeup, consumed alcohol, smoked, listened to jazz, sexually promiscuous, and other unsuitable behavior for women of that time.
With any group, there are those who live by the rules and there are those who break the rules. People come and go through time, but the same scenarios play out from one generation to the next.
Liberalism is fueled by discontent and never passes a chance to promote disharmony. The basic truth is that women and men are both different and equal; men do something better than women and women do some things better men and there are things both sexes do equally well. Life would be for us all, if we all can see this for what it is.
The Flapper era gave us a girls gone wild period, but I like it for the fashion, hair style, makeup, and music. Unfit behavior is never right regardless of your sex and should not be glamorized or glorified.
Thinking about the Flapper girls make me think of another more recent era. Look at the woman in the first picture below with the flowers in her hair. Now, what other generation comes to mind for doing this and having loose morals?
The Dandy wrote Flappers and the Roaring 20s that include a good source of history reads surrounding this topic.
I always said God uses bad situation to bring about good and this is one of those incidents. Flapper girls were synonymous with naughty living, but out of this rebel women were granted the right to vote, the option to attend college, and to work outside the home. God knows better than anyone what a woman is capable of doing. After all, He is the creator!
What comes to mind when you think of the Flapper fashion era? If you lived in the 20s, would you be a conservative Victorian lady or a Flapper girl or maybe a hybrid?
