I just read the book Vixen by Jillian Larkin.  It dealt with girls trying on the flapper lifestyle in Chicago, 1923.  The details of the clothes, hairstyles, ect. had me wanting to play dressup.  I seriously considered chopping my long locks to a flapper bob.  So I looked online at flapper haircuts, and the cutest pictures were always entertainer Louise Brooks.  But alas, everytime I cut my hair, I miss the femininity of my long hair Although I've seen many feminine ladies with shorter hair, I just don't think I look cute that way.  However, hair aside, I'm now totally obsessed with flappers, speakesies, ect.  The search is on for Louise Brooks movies, because she has me curious just from the still pics.  Also, the search is on for some fun, jazzy twenties tunes to listen to.  Let me know if you want to come along to the 20s with me, we'll have a gay time!
