Further to my post/"comments" section rant about my slight unease regarding the rather excessively prescriptive and restrictive Codes of dress put forth by the organizers of the upcoming Gatsby Picnic in California, I bring you the following visual. One of the hard and fast rules set out by the organizers is that attendees is "Please, no fishnet stockings. These were worn on the stage only and would've been considered bizarre with regular dress." However, please note the following illustration from a fashionable magazine from 1932, depicting very elegant ladies wearing fishnets as part of chic daywear, in a picnic-perfect outdoor setting no less. The lady at right is not wearing gloves either! GASP! Maybe that's why the other two dames are turning away from her. (Feel free to make up mock dialogue for this illustration hehe). Not trying to be a "know-it-all" Baroness, but just putting this out there as an example of the fact that the more prescriptive or restrictive one attempts to be about vintage fashion, the higher the likelihood that an exception to such codified rules shall emerge. In short, "never say never."
