The Speakeasy...



via

My daughter, Miss Tine, called me this morning
and asked if I could help her. She is planning a Ball 
around 1920's Prohibition and the Speakeasy.

She asked if I could could get in touch 
with people of 'my era...the older set'
who might have ideas on where she could
look for inspiration. I did mention in passing
that I was not a twenty something in the 1920's.

But I do know of a very talented group of readers who might
be able to suggest a few ideas for the twenty something crowd.

I thought of actress Clara Bow...

and The Great Gatsby.

I then thought of what a twenty something girl 
today would wear to a Speak Easy Ball.

and then wondered what I would wear, being that
I am 'of an era--in the older set'.
It didn't take me long to find this Poirot Design 
worn by Peggy Guggenheim.

So my question to you..when you think of the 1920's...
Prohibition...Speakeasy.. what else comes to mind? 
Any books, movies, photographs, links that might
help a young twenty something plan a Ball to remember?

I found this....




With that..
I wish you a rip-roaring weekend of fun and laughter!
1920's style..
