Fall Fashions in Color: Early 20th Century

I love these styles. They were so feminine, so impractical and fun to look at. Since then, most clothing has receded into being hardly about the cloth, and more about the big reveal. ;)
But we were just beginning to hurry then, to take trips faster, to make everything about rapidity. An interesting time in the history of the world. Technology has taken us so far so quickly, I think we've let it take us on a ride without gentility and calmness. Not everything that may be quickly done is necessarily better, in this possum's humble opinion. And our fashions reflect this.
Then and again, I do enjoy relaxing in my blue jeans and knit tops! LOL ;)
Thanks for looking in on our little weekend-long mini marathon today.
You may expect another post here shortly.
Happy Creativity!

Absolute delights to view this Monday morning.
The image bottom left hand corner I actually have on a decorative plate which I bought during my first ever trip to America. I adore the fashion and lifestyle, dance and music of the 20s and 30s.
Such elegance and sophistication.
A round of applause for sharing these with us.

Lynne: Oh, my! Wish I could view your plate!!! And don't you just adore that elegant looking dog? I fell in love with it straight off.
And you're right. They knew of style and glamour back then. I think we've got our own, but we've become less and less into the art of dressing, and more into comfort with ease. Both ideas have their merits. Wish we could combine them!
