    Fashion of the 1920's was exemplified by the "Flappers".
    The term "Flapper" refers to women of the 1920's who
    wore short skirts, bobbed their hair, listened to Jazz
    and flaunted their disdain for what was considered
    acceptable behavior.


    img006.jpg...img009.jpg
    Flappers were seen as brash for wearing excessive
    makeup, driving automobiles, and flaunting
    social, sexual, hair style, and fashion norms.
    The 20's were called "The Dangerous Generation"


    Flappers defied convention with their clothes,
    hair, feathered headbands and dance moves.
    Two famous flappers even risked dancing the
    Charleston on a Chicago rooftop.

    Flappers defied the norms for women

    .....Flappers wore clingy dresses
    .....Flappers bared and flaunted their ankles
    .....Flappers wore feathered headbands
    .....Flappers wore jewelry
    .....Flappers danced the Charleston
    .....Flappers drove automobiles

    Violet Was Her Name
    .....Her hat drew attention to her eyes
    .....Her lipstick drew attention to her mouth
    .....Her attitude drew attention to her

    Bobbed Hair, Cloches, FREEDOM
    Flappers defied the norms for women
    with their clothes, short hair, and their cloches

    .....Flappers had clingy dresses revealing their curves
    .....Flappers wore short skirts, which bared and
    flaunted their calves and ankles
    .....Flappers cut their hair short, at a time when
    "long hair is a woman's glory"

    Mine went out in yesterday's mail! It's such a fun theme, and so filled with fabulous things, that I had difficulty focusing & simplifying ... I think I was overwhelmed with ideas! But I did, finally, use my favorite ad from a 1929 National Educational Association Journal. I've been carrying these old magazines around for 15 years now. Did you know that teachers in the 20s and 30s had to teach students the fine art of gum massage?

    I will watch for your cards and let you know when they arrive.
    Thanks for the information on gum massage. Perhaps teachers should teach that class again.
    Today's humans gum's are pathetic, and subject to gingivitis.

    Yes, they can, as long as the stamp used pertains to something that happened in the 1920's.
    Often stamps are issued to commemorate something that occurred 50 years ago, or one hundred years ago, so 2020 is the perfect year to honor events from 1920.

    Your cards need to fit the 1920 theme.

    There is a movie called "Midnight in Paris" that depicts a modern man (in Paris) who somehow goes back to Paris in the 20's night after night.
    He meets T.S. Elliot, the Fitzgeralds, Gertrude Stein, Hemingway, Dali, Picasso, and Luis Bu˝uel, the father of cinematic Surrealism and one of the most original directors in the history of the film .

    If you need research material; any of the above people, the books they wrote, the paintings they created, the movies they envisioned, would make awesome ATCs.
