Flappers were a "new breed" of young women in the 1920’s who wore short skirts, bobbed their hair, listened to jazz, and flaunted their disdain for what was then considered acceptable behavior. Flappers were seen as brash for wearing excessive makeup, drinking, treating sex in a casual manner, smoking, driving automobiles, and otherwise flouting social and sexual norms. They were independent young women who went by night to jazz clubs where they danced provocatively, smoked cigarettes and dated freely, perhaps indiscriminately. (That’s from Wikipedia. And if Wikipedia says something, you know it’s got to be true.) You’ve always identified with the Flapper lifestyle. You fancy yourself an independent young woman; you enjoy driving automobiles, you wear a lot of makeup (though you personally wouldn’t call it “excessive”), and you do occasionally take a drink every now and then (understatement alert). I mean, you did quit smoking last year, and you don’t have as much casual sex as you used to, though you do still date indiscriminately (not by choice, mind you; if you could just find a guy who could commit, the whole “indiscriminate” thing would stop). And while you do go to clubs at night, you don’t really do jazz (unless Nicki Minaj is jazz). You definitely do dance provocatively though (Nicki Minaj kind of demands it). But if being a Flapper means “flouting social and sexual norms”, then you are definitely a Flapper. You love flouting things, especially norms. So when you dress up as a Flapper for Halloween, wear these authentic Flapper shoes. They are perfect footwear for flouting. The Spectator Maryjane Women’s Flapper Shoes features a 3" kitten heel and round toe.
Remember, even Cinderella had to try on her shoes! Please make sure that your shoes fit and are comfortable before you use them. Shoes that show obvious wear or are missing the original packaging are not returnable.Read More
