Do You Take Inspiration From The Fashions of Flappers?

I haven't posted anything for a while because I thought I didn't have any outfits and life was too crazy to do anything else (seriously, my Saturday consisted of 11 hours at a track meet [2 mile and 4x800 relay!] and then coming home to a dinner party. Blahh). But, turns out, I did have another set of outfit pics to post. D'oh! Um, I guess they'll have to wait, because I feel like doing today's....

Because my dumbutt camera never quite shows the lipstick bright enough in larger photos...
Well actually it's rather brighter than these even... And my purple eyeliner which you can't quite see....

Then, after I had finished taking the pictures, I decided to add a nice long necklace and this headband:
H&M fringe dress. Thrifted cardigan of love. American Apparel silver lamé leggings. Forever 21 bracelet and headband. Doc Martens boots.

The last minute outfit additions (well actually, I forgot to completely get dressed before I took my outfit photos) kind of exemplify my state of mind lately... extremely scattered. My cat is wicked dumb and keeps trying to drink from the pan catching the water from the mysterious leaking radiator! Bad Stryper! And now he's being all annoying and giving me cute innocent looks. But anyway....

The title refers to what a somewhat interesting teacher asked me when he saw that I was taking out a book about women of the 1920s as research for my essay on how women's roles changed in the 20th century (whew long sentence). I looked down at my outfit and was sorely tempted to say "Well duhhhh!"

(i was almost one for halloween, but i don't think i could pull it off as an everyday outfit, like you.)the headband is my favorite part.
you totally should have said to the teacher, "no, this is just how i dress on the weekends." ;)
