Women in the 1920's



This is another picture from 1925. It shows two women at an outdoor party. To me the dresses show over the top conspicuous consumption that he 1920's were famous for. I think the dresses look like overdone draperies. I like simpler, functional styles.

  1. I see the one woman is dressed in a Japanese style kimono and paper parasol. I'm sure she didn't dress that way all the time. Again, no smiling. Maybe they all had bad teeth?

  2. Fancy dress parties...gotta wonder what they are doing...look at the balloons on the floor.

    Some kind of party.

  3. Neither one looks particularly happy; maybe it is the shoes. they look tight. But I suppose going around looking like over done drapes is nothing to smile about.

  5. The lady on the right looks rather pleasant, I think. You'll notice the balloons are all on wooden sticks; they are not helium filled. The woman one the left may just have sore hands from holding all those sticks. If they had to face the sun - many early pictures were taken that way - they might look as happy as possible under the circumstances. Staring into the sun makesit hard to smile!
