My name is Maddy and I am a flapper

So it all began last night, I was having our family dinner at my Grandparent's like we do every Tuesday,(very Gilmore Girls) and I don't remember how exactly the conversation turned to this but, by the time we'd finished our soup, I'd been declared a flapper!
Yes, according to my Gran I dress like a jazz loving, bob-haired, cigarette smoking, 1920s flapper.
Wikipedia describes a flapper as "a"new breed" of young women who wore short skirts, bobbed their hair, listened to the new jazz music, and flaunted their distain for what was then considered acceptable behavior. The flappers were seen a brash for wearing excessive makeup, drinking, treating sex in a casual manner, smoking, driving automobiles, and otherwise flouting conventional and sexual norms."

And although you have never seen me (yet) I can assure you that I barely tick two of these requirements, short skirts and makeup. It's not as if I walk around dressed as Catherine Zeta-Jones in Chicago, I usually just wear scuffed Chucks and odd socks..

Although I'm still a little confused by my new label it did get me thinking. I could do with a bit more 'flapper' in my wardrobe. Here are some of my favourite flapperish fandangles.

Who's a flapper?
Sportsgirl headband, pearl and art deco bracelets
jeweled headbands & silk stockings

Hey Maddy-

Thanks for coming to my site! I think "flapper" style is great. It is one of my favorite Halloween costumes. Your polyvore set is great-- I'm so addicted to that site.

Kate said...

I love the flapper style :D It's fun to pull off. I love the polyvore you made, it's perfect!

Thanks for your comment! I wish you well as you start on your blogging adventure :) I'd love to swap links with you! I'll definitely be stopping by again.

xo, Kate

I love the flapper look but I'm not sure about the dress in the polyvore though. The flapper silhouette was mainly loose and shapless that dress has a fitted bodice...

The flapper look is cute!
the lifestyle's not something i'm into though, haha. I love the polyvore, the gloves are pretty.

LJ said...

Judging by your last two posts, I'd love to swap links.
I am a bit of a flapper myself, having the hair cut and body for it (though it's probably not evident in my blog...grunge nearly always takes over). I'd ove to see you in real life, rocking these looks

wow, I love all those things on your polyvore.. it can't be too bad being a flapper :).

and yes, i'd love to exchange links!
i seriously don't think you need advice though, not from me anyhow, your blog is great, and you seem to have alot of readers which is a great sign!

are you serious?! only these two posts? don`t get me all excited like that! you definitely need to post more, & FAST!
i love the flapper look, even though i doubt i could pull it off. it`s just kind of chic & classy, while at the same time being kind of bad-ass.
anyway, enough with the long comment - please keep updating, your blog is kinda really fab. can we link-exchange by any chance?

Moded'amour said...

I have a long, boy-ish figure so flapper dresses suit me so well!

Gorgeous blog.

ko0ty said...

I love the flapper style of the roaring 20's too... the past decades are so glamorous and I kinda wish it still was (eg. where all women wore dresses, etc) but then I'm thankful that our society is open to all kinds of styles now.

Vintage and Cake said...

Loving the name and the blog :) xx

One day I was surfing web and suddenly I came across website called www.home-businessreviews.com I learned how to begin my own home business and i was able at last leave my job where i worked one year, now I'm earning up to 5K USD month. I was able to make such kind of cash because I discovered some very great home business reviews. At site called www.home-businessreviews.com OK seems that website owner at last discovered really good home business program which helped him to begin his own work at home based business opportunity, so he eventually decided to set up site and tell about his own experience about making money online. It seems that he lost so much money before he discovered winner home business program which actually helped to make money online. But which one? take a look at site below!
