This silk devore Roberto Cavalli dress would work well. But is $1,000 excessive for a Halloween costume?


The Benefits of Being a Flapper for a Night

Sun, 10/25/2009 - 11:38AM by Kristen Philipkoski 0 Comments -

I was just checking out the handbag-rental webset Bagborrowsteal.com. Has anyone used it? I'm thinking about signing up but so far I haven't seen that many bags I'm interested in. But then I came across his gorgeous Valentino evening bag and was trying to think of an occasion when I could carry it. Then it came to me: Halloween! It's very Flapper. Flappers Were kind of the hippies of the 20s, but with different music, shorter hair and prettier dresses. From Wikipedia: "Flappers were seen as brash for wearing excessive makeup, drinking, treating sex in a casual manner, smoking, driving automobiles and otherwise flouting social and sexual norms." So I get to smoke, wear lots of makeup, behave in a sexually casual manner, and carry this bag for a night? Flapper it is!
