The ball is rolling towards Halloween and I’m so excited! Who doesn’t like dressing up and playing pretend for one night? Many of you ladies may believe that slut-a-fying your costume will improve your chances of getting laid. You’re probably right. However, since I work hard to preserve our fading integrity, may I suggest another alternative: flappers!
Sexy and chic – you don’t need to lose your clothes to look lavish this Halloween, observe:
Flappers were a “new breed” of young Western women in the 1920s 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.
That sums up my time in Miami alright, aside from driving automobiles. Flappers had broken free of the stuffy Victorian era, let their hair down and then cut it short. They behaved in the ways of men – and made no apologies for it. In some ways, flappers are the first feminists. Living out loud and doing it in style. Why not pay homage this Halloween. Kick up your t-straps and have some fun!
And here’s a little video that shows you how to do a flapper-style hairdo.
