Flapper Girl Lady Ties

It’s been a wild, wonderful ride these past few years, working towards what Flapper Girl has become. Growth and adventure always leads to more growth and adventure. I’ve got a head full of dreams and plans for creative endeavors for 2015, and part of gearing up for a new, exciting year (and path) is closing up the Flapper Girl shop—for good.

I’d like to thank all of you for your ♥ and support during this amazing journey. It means so much to me that you all believed in what I was creating and putting out there in the world. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

If you’d like to get any Flapper Girl neckwear at a deep discount, please check out the huge clearance sale happening over at the Flapper Girl shop, and please spread the word to anyone who might be interested in grabbing a Lady Tie or two for themselves or someone special in their lives.

Everything must go by end of 2014! I’m also open to trade :)

I’m excited to announce that you can now find two styles of Flapper Girl Bijou Ties on ModCloth. I’m thrilled to have Flapper Girl be a part of one of my favorite online clothing boutiques. This is a very surreal & proud moment for me. Thank you, ModCloth! And, as always, big thanks go out to all of you for your Flapper Girl ♥ and support.

New Old Specs

August 28, 2013


Here’s me in my new-to-me vintage eyeglass frames. This is the first time I haven’t had cat-eye specs in almost 10 years. The rectangle frames match my bobbed hair so much better, though.

As always, my frames came from Hollywood Vintage here in Portland.

Halloween Inspiration: Badass Bat Costume

August 26, 2013



I love this handmade 1920s-inspired bat costume by Lindsey Roo. It has an amazing eleven-foot wingspan!

Materials: Vintage dress, modified felt cap, wire, fabric, gloves, and makeup.

So fantastic!

Summer is beginning to wind down, so I want to post these last little pieces of eye candy before the weather slips into being cool and crisp, and we’re all wrapped up in wool.

These two suits and the water shoes* are so incredible, and I would love to have something similar to wear to the beach.

I also included the Jantzen logo from the 1920s, because it’s pretty fantastic as well. I live right by all the old Jantzen buildings, and one of them even has ornamental friezes of their iconic lady swimmers.

Jantzen will always have a special place in my heart for making the only swimsuit I’ve owned as an adult—a full-coverage jet black suit I lovingly refer to as my Wednesday Addams swimsuit.

* Oh, how I wish I could have gone to this show at the Bata Shoe Museum!

I love this sassy lady’s cowgirl style—especially that adorably kick-ass neckerchief!
