yes, i took a quick peek into the abyss, i couldn’t resist before digging into the nightshift. you know how blogging makes me all happy and stuff.  well,  i clicked on a random day and just two links pulled onto  just the ride i needed to recharge. this universe never disappointsl!

so this just a non sequitur from a  free fall.  hope you have fun where ever you’re headed!

it’s funny how this trail of breadcrumbs was all about flappers.

anyway, duty calls.  i’m starting to see the light,  sort of. the details never seem to end, i can’t wait to say, fini!

ok enough talk, work!

April 23, 2010. 1920's, 1930's, flappers.

    i just love ridiculously overly dramatic women at their vanities, not sure why that is but there’s always another one i’ve never seen. like these!

    Oh yes, I can see the cuties all dolled up in those vamp outfits. The “stage door Johnnies” waiting at the rear exit with the Stutz Bearcat car. Then off to the speakeasy. Fun post.

    Claudia, I couldn’t decide whether to laugh and admire the over the top preciousness of it all or cry at the anorexic arms and sheer vanity. Hmmm.
    I think I’ll go the former! Best wishes, Therese

    well put, therese! i think the frivolity and the vanity of what is so mesmerizing. where else do we see women showing this sort of bizarre of abandon?

    I couldn’t agree with you more about the the glories of this blogging world! It’s astounding how creative people are, and I love it. Keep bringing us inspiration every day!

    More vanities! So divine! I can’t wait to get back into the book, Vanity for Humanity…. Actually I can wait a bit cuz I really want to see what you find in Paris first! :)
