VINTAGE PROM PHOTOGRAPHY AND FASHION

1920s prom queen

THE YOUNG GIRL ALL IN WHITE IN THIS VINTAGE PHOTOGRAPH APPEARS TO BE EITHER DRESSED FOR HER SENIOR PROM OR A CORONATION. I FOUND THIS PICTURE ON A REAL PHOTOGRAPHIC POSTCARD FROM THE 1920S. IT WAS PROBABLY A ONE OFF PICTURE CARD MADE TO COMMEMORATE THIS SPECIAL OCCASION.

FLAPPERS AND PHILOSOPHERS

FLAPPER GIRLS KNEW THEIR FASHION AND THEIR PHILOSOPHY. THEY KNEW HOW TO DRESS AND HOW TO DRINK AND THEY SPOKE THEIR MINDS. WOMEN OF THE 1920’S WERE A DIFFERENT BREED FROM THE WOMEN WHO CAME BEFORE THEM. THE ROARING TWENTIES WERE ALSO KNOWN AS THE JAZZ AGE. I AM DEDICATING THIS POST TO THE ORIGINAL FLAPPERS, THE GATSBY GIRLS, THE SHOP GIRLS AND THE MOVIE STARS.
