  7. I love the 20's too! I've wanted to be a flapper for the past 3 Halloween's but I haven't come around to actually getting the costume. Maybe this year, haha. If I could go back to any decade, it would definitely be the 20's. :)

  10. The 20's were so fabulous! Their hair was incredible. I think I am obsessed with the 80's- I know it's kind of overdone now but I love it still!

  16. Def. the 20's, and even more specific, in the Great Gatsby. The Beatnik late 50's is a close second.

  17. My barre instructor plays swing music and it puts me in the best mood!! I'm thinking that's like the 40's? Fun post!

  19. i just want to slip on that dress and dance!

  20. The 20's is too, my favorite decade! My great grandmother kept elobrate scrapbooks & journals of her teen years in the 20's and saved all her beautiful dresses that she used to go out dancing in. It is by far my favorite possession!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I LOVE the 20s too! All things flapper have me hooked. The dresses you want to dance in & the feather headbands! I also have a soft spot for the 50s. I love poodle skirts & the whole sweetness of the dresses from that era. I just realized that those eras make no sense together. Haha. Oh well.

  25. I love the 20's but I am definitely a late 60's early 70's girl. My hippie heart goes crazy imagining myself back then.

  26. Oooh! I love this post! I love the 20s - I was a flapper girl for Halloween many years in a row. My mom made me the most perfect dress that I wore for dress up all the time. Such a fun decade!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm with ya! I love the 20s. The Great Gatsby is my all-time fave book!
    The parties, the lifestyle, the breezy south... ohh a girl can dream!

    But lately I've been watching Mad Men. Although I don't particularly care for how the men treated their wives, The dresses and the whole lifestyle seems so amazing.

  28. Beautiful post--I would totally ROCK a flapper dress! I think the 60s really do it for me though, the bright colors, flowy materials. Such a great balance.

    ReplyDelete
  29. i have a HUGE soft spot for the 20's myself. The rebellious nature of prohibition, the fabulous clothes, a female revolution. love your photos, Jillian!

    i wander, i wonder

  30. Funny thing. My mom always said that I should have been born in the 20's..that she thinks I would have fit in perfectly. :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. I wish I could have a cute little 20s bob! Finger curls are hard though...

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'm right there with you on the 20s, though I think I'd love to transport myself to the 50s. I love the fringe and fun from the 20s so much, but I love the great lines a few decades later! I have been told that I should have been born in the 70s so I could have rocked the big hair in the 80s ;) xoxo {av}

    p.s. I'm linking up tomorrow with some southern inspiration--I'm pumped!

  34. This is one of my favorite decades hands down!!! I just love the glitz and glamour of it, and all the fancy outfits!!!

    I also love the 80's. What can I say, I'm an 80s girl!!! :)

  37. John's been reading Fitzgerald short stories and this morning, he left the house wearing suspenders! I think my favorite decade would be '54-'64; there's something so heavenly about the styles and sensibility!

  38. 20s or 40s definitely! So glam!

    ReplyDelete
  39. So glamorous! Definitely agree with you! xo

  40. i like a little bit of everything from each era, I'd have to say...but if I had to pick some..20's, 50's, 70s...and the bigger the hair the better!!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. ahh love the 20's for sure. every year flapper runs through my head around halloween time, but i've never done it... any excuse to wear a dress like that!

  45. I have always been keen on 20s style too but recently have been very keen on the 50s revival that is going on especially the furniture!

  46. Personally, I am a fane of late 50's early 60's for the clothing and decor. 20's is awesome though, I just don't think I can pull off 20's style anywhere but a fancy dress party!

  47. Because my hubby and I are frantically catching up on Mad Men (just finished season 2), I am loving the early 1960s right now :)

    Plus I have fun imagining my grandparents as the newlyweds and young parents they were during this time!

  48. I adore the twenties as well! I'm also a huge fan of late '50's/early 60's fashion. Classy!
