Well, hello and welcome! You’ve found your way to my brand new blog, 21st Century Flapper.
After blogging at Blogger since 2009, I figured it was about time for change. I wanted a new name, a new address and a whole new blog to reflect the fresh direction that I wanted to take: the shift from what ended up being a fairly regular vintage style blog to also include my other early 20th century interests. Film, most importantly. Since my work revolves around Finnish film history, I wanted an outlet for my always ongoing Hollywood related research as well. Also, since I began blogging over five years ago, my vintage fashion interests have heavily shifted from mid-century to early 20th century.
I wish to thank my friend Mycah for designing the flapper-tastic layout for me. The header image is from the Sjöhistoriska’s excellent 1920s and 1930s sailor tattoo exhibition, which is still running until the end of the year. I hope you all like the design as much as I do!
