Soaring 20s – Not Roaring

Okay, this one is a H-U-G-E stretch…but once I justify myself hopefully you will understand why I am calling it Soaring 20s – Not Roaring.

1. My editorial calendar says it’s “Bird Day“. Now I could have gone SO many directions with that one but as the only article of clothing I own that is somewhat related is the short-sleeved shirt with feathers on it that I shared with you when I bought my silk mint-green Ralph Lauren pants this past summer, there weren’t a lot of fashion options.

2. As I have declared May “The Great Gatsby” month of inspiration, I wanted to stay on theme.

3. When I think of the 20s I also think of Art Deco and the trip the Fashion Mister and I took to Egypt. Which did provide so much inspiration to fashion and jewelry of the Roaring 20s.

So…to bring all that together?

Bird related photos from our trip to Egypt!


As I warned, Soaring 20s – Not Roaring…a bit of a stretch. I have a piece of onyx jewelry (very art deco) and a mother-of-pearl scarab beetle both purchased while in Egypt. Either of them could have come from the roaring – soaring 20s.
