The Roaring Twenties

Great Gatsby

Flapper: Term used in the early 1900 to describe a young girl who had yet to become a debutante. By the 1920’s it meant any young woman who cut her hair short, wore Cloche hats and later Berets, a short skirt and blouse, stockings rolled at the knees, and heeled – usually T-bar shoes. She was commonly thought of then, as now, as a rather ditzy young thing, flouting conventional behaviour.

With Gatsby-mania in full swing and the revival of all things twenties, I thought I would use this opportunity to indulge in some smoky eyes and plum pouts for a little impromptu photo-shoot.
