With your bubbly personality, the right dress, beautiful shoes, a simple necklace, and some dangling earrings - will make you the most intriguing and elegant guest at any get together.

Timeless Modern Style

In the Twenties, fashion shifted away from the stodgy conservative styles.

Hemlines rose to the knee, and then above it - exposing the muscular dancer's legs - toned from dancing to the popular music of the 1920's - jazz.

The style allowed a beautiful young woman to dance; really express herself, while the dress exposed just enough skin (in just the right places) to attract the attention of the right boys.

Beautiful women still rock the flapper dress today. . . The dress lives on!

The beauty of the dress came not only from the garment itself, but the confidence of the woman wearing it. This was the era of the liberated woman after all. . . plus a woman's ability to accessorize using the beaded cool fashion jewelry of the 1920's.

With the great music came great dances like "The Charleston" and "The Lindy Hop". 

The Twenties style dress adds to the allure of a woman's body - her gorgeous dress, bobbed hair, sparkling jewelry, and toned limbs moving together to the rhythm of the music. 

Unsurpassed Beauty

You too can put together the perfect look for your next night on the town.

Whether dancing or dining (both hopefully) you will look great in a vintage flapper dress or a versatile modern flapper style dress from one of the great designers like Sue Wong or Max Azria.
