This dress is one of a couple that is peaking my interest right now. I have an hourglass shape, on the pear side, and mermaid style (I’ve been reading) supposedly is best for my shape. Good thing I like that! It’s hard to tell in pictures, But I’m hoping that’s an antique white, and not too yellow or gross. I may end up having this made for me, rather than buy it.

Thanks Dear! You are so sweet! I plan on having fun with all the planning, after all, anything that has to do with the 1920s, I already have TONS of references :)
Harry Houdini, c. 1918, vanishing Jennie the Elephant at the Hippodrome in New York.
Harry Houdini was a childhood idol of mine. When I was 7, I wanted nothing more than to be a magician (“and artist too!” I would always say, haha!), and I would turn cardboard boxes into box tricks, and mom’s scarves into vanishing scarves. I remember the Tony Curtis version of Houdini as my favorite as a kid. So in honor of my childhood hero, I present some of my favorite photos of him :)
Sometimes a Poet. Always an Artist. Perpetually obsessed with the 1920s and 30s. Continually enthralled with literature, jazz and decent musical theater. Often seen with oil paint on arms and hands. Regularly dabbles in singing and writing music. Particularly fond of kindness, manners and old-fashionedness. Recurrently a walking thesaurus.
My resource for my daily 20s and 30s sayings come from a great book called "Flappers 2 Rappers" by Tom Dalzell.
