I was agreeing with a twitter friend (@cyrilnaicker) on how lovely the fashions, hairstyles, architecture and dances (Charleston, anyone?) of the 1920’s are, when I thought to myself: “Mmmm… but I’m glad I’m living now too.”
There is such a wide choice available to us when it comes to fashion and other trends.
Geometrics are in.

but so are pastels.
Your hair can be long, or short, or just somewhere in between.
Glamour and glitter is in,

but so is hand-made.
Modernistic is in.
But so is Scandinavian (has it ever been out of style?)

And lifestyle? Where in the 20’s a married woman had no choice but to be a wife and mother, we now have a choice. If you can afford to stay at home with your children, you can, but if you don’t want to, nobody’s going to make a fuss over it.
I like that I can choose what to wear every day. In the 20’s the dresses were rather shapeless – and though I do love it so much, frankly on my body it would not have looked well. Believe me, I’ve tried on those long-line low-waisted dresses.
I like that I can wear pants today, a dress tomorrow, a skirt, high heels, low heels, flat shoes, bright colours, muted colours. I like that I can be….well, me!
