"The flapper awoke from her lethargy of sub-deb-ism, bobbed her hair, put on her choicest pair of earrings and a great deal of audacity and rouge and went into battle," wrote Zelda Fitzgerald in 1922. "She flirted because it was fun to flirt." Splashed throughout with quotes in snazzy lettering and art deco illustrations, this little book is your guide to the first truly modern era, the Roaring Twenties, known for hot jazz and all-night dance halls, scandalous exploits and fresh new fashions, and of course, the notorious flapper, loving her newfound social and sexual freedom in the decade after the Great War. Here you'll find wardrobe essentials, beauty hints, cocktail recipes, tips for throwing a giddy soirée, and jazz playlists for a night out—and the morning after.
