Well, some of the flapper dress designs in the past did not really call for a little dressing up, just a little more. They were short and strappy with a low V neck line, so you could wear them to the beach, or at night in the sun.
What’s up with that?
Why don’t most other dress styles look like this! Well, that may have to do with the fact that it wasn’t until about a quarter of a century ago that we actually started to see a lot of the modern flapper dress styles that were the standard when the flapper dress was first developed as a costume. The basic idea behind those flappers was a little bit of what I’ve come to understand as “dancer fashions,” so long as the dress was flattering, but with a little more flare in the neck. Back when these dresses were being worn, they weren’t quite so high-waisted as they are today in the summer, which makes the dress a little more forgiving to put on under.
Can I wear one of your dresses to the annual Costume Institute?
No, I’m afraid it would be a total no-no. It’s really a flapper dress; like a ’40s flapper dress. It has some flare, but is low-waisted and cut low for the best bust-for-waist ratio. So unless you’re really busty, I wouldn’t suggest you wear it!
A new federal judge issued an emergency stay Saturday against a portion of the so-called ‘religious freedom’ law passed last week. The order was put on hold until Jan. 13 to give the state time to file a response to the decision.
“I will stay all proceedings pending the issuance of state and federal briefs in opposition to Plaintiffs’ request for a stay as to SB 109. I will also stay pending further orders in opposition to Plaintiffs’ request for a stay as to SB 310,” U.S. District Judge Reed O. Beckle wrote in his order.
The court’s order came on the heels of the state’s attorneys appealing Beckle’s September 10 ruling to the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. During Tuesday’s hearing the state’s attorneys argued that the law is not a violation of equal protection and due process because religious-affiliated health programs cannot discriminate based on sexual orientation or religious practices.
