While jumping from one blog to another, I came across an article about dressing according to “your” era. According to the article, all body shapes have been considered ideal at one time or another. My boyish body shape, for example, was considered the “ideal” during the 20s and 30s, while hourglass figures were all the rage during the 40s.
I thought my era, the 20s, was rather appropriate, since Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby is one of my favorite books of all time. With my short bob and stick-like body, I look like a relic from the 20s. Flappers also have a soft spot in my heart for being one the first female rebels. Also, the 20s happened to be Coco Chanel's heyday.
