Champagne and Fur Stoles

Life's been a little chaotic lately and with the lack of time I've had to sleep updating the blog has been the last thing on my mind. With that said I recently received a little gift in the mail...Edward Steichen's book In High Fashion. Having never heard of the photographer before I immediately fell in love with his images. The book focuses mainly on the years between 1923-1937 with low back gowns, dropped waistes and finger waved hair evoking the glamour and glitz of the flapper years and conjuring images of Fitzgerald's Daisy Buchanan.

The "flapper" look is probably my favorite of the 20th century (besides the bangin bell bottomed high-waisted 70's flower child look). It helps emphasize the beauty of the feminine figure, showing some skin while leaving just enough to the imagination of the viewer. I dig it MaryLove.
