Flappers in Full Bloom

As February wanes, I long for spring-like things.  Bring on the candy colours distilled in these 20s photographs and floral silk chiffon frocks!

oh my.. the colors in the second to last dress, the pink one from hemlock vintage, are to dye for! (sorry... had to do it)
And the orange one from your shop is adorable, if the 20s silhouette didn't so accent my, ahem, small-chestedness, it would be hard to resist! The fabric and colors in all of these are so whimsical, I love it!

These are magical!!! I just love the vibrancy of those chiffon flapper frocks; so spring-y and sweet!

What beauties! I especially like the first one (minus the cascade of flowers), and yours, which is absolute perfection, lovely and balanced. Shape wise, I really dig the third one with the capelet detail at the shoulders.

* I meant the second one

20's are really not my favorite era for fashion... But it's so rare to see color pictures of the 20's and those flowers dresses are really at their best in bright colors!!!
Please check this post about 20's magazines that I found some month ago, you will love it for sure:
