I went out and bought a Hallowe’en costume yesterday. I haven’t dressed up for Hallowe’en since high school. Oh wait, I lie. There was one year I had to work at the mall on Hallowe’en night about 7 or 8 years ago, and I dressed up then. But other than that, I haven’t dressed up in over 10 years. But there are a few Hallowe’en parties that we’ve been invited to this year, and so I needed a costume. I ended up finding what I needed to become a flapper, even if just for one night.
So, I thought it would be suitable to have this week’s Listed themed after novels about flappers, bright young things, and the jazz age in general.
