When we think of the 1920s, we think of a wholesome period in our history. The war was over, the economy was healthy, and people used phrases like, "It's the bee's knees!" Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton were making people laugh, Rudolph Valentino was making women swoon, and silent movies were all the rage. Times were innocent and care-free, right?! Well, not exactly. Behind the scenes, down dark alleys and away from the pages of history books, were the bootleggers and rumrunners, the burlesque and the flappers, all taking fun to the next level.
Prohibition may have been signed into law on January 16, 1919, but that didn't stop this fun-loving -- and profit-minded -- group from getting their party on. You could head over to a speakeasy, a blind pig, or a juice joint and imbibe alcoholic beverages on the sly while listening to some hot jazz tunes. Oh, and dance. There was a lot of dancing in scandalously short skirts. You couldn't do the Charleston or the Lindy Hop in your mother's proper ankle length dress. You needed room to jump, kick, and ... well ... hop!
This black tank dress is reminiscent of the classic flapper garb with its sparkly sequins, two tiers of fringe, and a feathered headband. Just add lots of long necklaces and a feather boa, you'll be ready to jump and jive! Alcohol optional.
