It’s the roaring 20’s; Gatsby! Gals flap your way into my Speakeasy, Gentleman tame your mustache

This is an invite for my birthday celebration 🙂 I’m going for a Speakeasy theme. I’m a fan of all things vintage and fancy so I’m thrill to bring this event to live. The idea was to make it glamorous but shabby. This is a handkerchief made out of cotton fabric with some lace trim, added a puffy black feather, a golden button and some colorful glitz to spice things up!

Speakeasy; stands for speak-easy as if softly,term used for bars that sold alcohol secretively during the Prohibition era in the USA between the years 1920-1933; when the ban lifted. The era is more often referred to as the roaring 20’s.

the 1920’s was also known for its glamorous and exquisite fashion, for the era of outlaws, Moonshine, Bootlegging and gangsters. Adding to this was the famous flappers: girl with a promiscuous and lust agenda. Definitely an era of tumultuous protest and those in support of lifting the ban on alcohol, (actual bill name was the Volstead Act) march holding signs that read: We Want Beer and Wet Voter!
There is so much to this era that to narrow it down to one post is to frankly degraded by the power of a thousand!
