I love the way that 1920s postcards that are supposedly mocking flappers just wind up making them look pretty awesome. Look at these two - plus fours and an argyle sweater? Bring it on! Blazer, shorts and socks? I’m up for it! Bobbed hair? Well, already there!

The climactic scene of Our Dancing Daughters - Anita Page holding her own with Joan Crawford. An interesting angle for Joan’s robe de style gown.

Anonymous said: Anything goes - Do you drink and smoke like a flapper?

I certainly drink like one - give me a bottle of champagne and I’m a happy woman. Many of my favourite tipples are 1920s favourites, like White Ladies and Sidecars.

I don’t smoke (my grandfather died of lung cancer), but I do sometimes have a decorative cigarette holder and Sobranie in hand.

And I Charleston at the drop of the hat. In fact, I’ll be the one that makes sure the trilby or cloche hits the ground!
