Did you know that the term flapper came from Great Britain meaning "impetuous teen girl?" As it turns out, not everyone was so happy about the rebellious attitude these young women had when celebrating their new found freedom. Maybe they were just jealous of how much fun these ladies were having.
The year 1920 was the year that women were legally allowed to vote in the United States so it was time for them to do some celebrating! The economy was doing wonderfully, and it seemed like America absolutely could not lose! For the young women out there life seemed like one big party all of a sudden. They did so many appalling things that no lady ever would have done such as ride bicycles, drive automobiles, smoke cigarettes, and listen to jazz music! As a result, the old Victorian styles of their parents and grandparents had to go (we mean, have you tried doing the Charleston in one of those stuffy old dresses?). The hemlines got a little shorter, stockings gave way to much more fun shoes, and feathers were put into headbands. Did we mention everything got a little flashier?
Just take this flapper dress for example. It's bright silver from headband to hemline, and we're loving every inch of it! It really shows that you came to this party to do a little shimmy and have some fun! It even comes with a delightful little matching headband topped with a faux ostrich feather iconic of the famous roarin' period. All you need now is a pair of cute shoes, maybe a feather boa, and a pair of long gloves.
