From Hello, Bluebird, To Hello, Blue Dress and Straight Bob: The Effects of Hobo Jazz on a Gal
Who knew listening to the likes of Janet Klein and her Parlour Boys all day would uncurl a gal's hair? Couldn't resist trying on a beautiful frock I'm readying for the shop (I believe it's from the later teens to early 20s, probably 1918 to 1920? Fashion history experts, feel free to give me your thoughts here...my own sense is that it is pretty much identical in length and style to the pink dress I've got in the shop that I also think seems to date from this same era [my money is on 1919) and thought I'd go for a straighter hairdo today (darn humidity kept making the waves come back). I'm hoping to have the dress listed some time this weekend. Convo me through the shop if you like what you see and want to know more (or want to call DIBS). Shoes, which are 1960s does Edwardian-1920s, are also for sale. Isn't it funny how clothing can make a person not only look, but FEEL and act/carry oneself completely differently? This dress reminds me of a dolly's dress, which made me feel kinda sassy and youthful when wearing it. Same with the hair. After a year of experimenting, I know I feel most ME in 1930s garb (clothes from 1932-36 to be precise...yes, I am THAT much of a vintage fashion nerd), but I never tire of dress up. What era/vintage style makes you feel most like your (best) self?
