May I add confetti sprinkles with that?
I just did..;) An iridescent leather pearlized pinkish gold lapel was a smart touch..

Luscious to look at, even more so to wear. Choosing to wear a fitted suit to the office in the 40's, 50's was more of a choice than a chore. Worn for comfort and style, the working woman of this era wanted to present themselves as sophisticated as well as successful.. And.. they did.

In the 70s, Bells were a hit, pants took on a whole new meaning in fashion, the bigger the pant leg, the better the walk, you could strut some heavy stuff in a pair of Palazzo's we loved them! As a child of the 70s I found these bigger than better pants to be the easy, fun, stylish fashion to wear.. Dress me up.. we are strut-in some good stuff..;)
Love the extra wide leg, the cool comfy feeling, the relaxed yet, very dressy way to see the town. I love my Palazzo's!

20's tiered drop waist flapper dress

June 12, 2011

The flapper redefined modern womanhood.

The 1920s is the decade in which fashion entered the modern era. It was the decade in which women first liberated themselves from constricting fashions and began to wear more comfortable stylish clothes. Not the brassy flapper as defined, we see a more classical design. Displayed is an example of a tea gown, tea frock, garden party dress. Translucent fabric's like silk chiffon or organdy, and even newly created rayon were being used in these stylized frocks. Love the way this dress is designed with it's tiered drop skirt in the form of falling leaves.

In the 1930s, the public began to feel the effects of the Great Depression, the dresses of the 30s became simple in design, the dresses were more Slender fitting to the womans figure than those of the 20s, The designers of the 30s were looking for a Romantic look, a feminine style, the use of printing on fabrics with silk screening allowed a design on fabric, until the 1930s this had not been used in America there were a few Countries that had the ability as in China, France and Italy. A breakthrough for American Textile and Floral printing on fabric was the new approach to colorful designs, to capture the changing trends. Florals started out as a copy of Botanical garden scenes, big bold floral with subtle colors to attract the eye, with time increased color added to the printing process, without the limits. Colors became more vibrant, eye catching florals. Here is an example of the changing trends in 30s fabric's, using the silk screening process. Notice the vibrant large florals.. A dark bold background was a noted way to catch the attention. The addition to Floral printed fabrics began.
