Twice upon a time …
Before the world came to a standstill, I was invited to a Roaring ’20s party to teach the Charleston. It was a cool joint with a live jazz band playing tunes from the 1920s during dinner. The flappers were all dolled up. The fellas looked dapper in their bow ties and suspenders. We were putting on the ritz; no rag-a-muffins in this joint.
It was like stepping back into the 1920s, only this is the 2020s. After dinner, they served noodle juice and sinkers. You might say it was the bee’s knees.
It was a swell time!

I had fun doing an updo flapper-style.
This week I had a second opportunity to wear it to the Costume Ball with some of our dancers. The fringes are fantastic for dancing! May’s place is perfect for this occasion and looks like a scene from The Great Gatsby.
This dress was in style 100 years ago and it’s still fashionable today for parties. Maggie and I showed up in the same type of outfit, including a string of pearls and fishnet stockings (no we didn’t plan it, great minds really do think alike!).

Do you know the lingo of the 1920s? 🤔
