Dapper Style

Vintage or Dapper for the day

Get out your best and come on out. Let the world know who you are. You will get a lot of looks and be asked a lot questions.   Try going to a car show. Most are once a month on a Saturday. We plan to go to many of them. When we did the Steampunk in Inverness, FL. they had an air show and car show at the same time.  It was fun.  Dapper style is coming back and you can be a part of it.  If you need others to show up at your event in your town just ask on Facebook or look for a local group in your city.  Go to vintage stores - some have things going on in the store.  One store had a 1950’s hair and makeup day.

1920’s

A friend of ours started posting pictures of a lot of people dressed in 1920’s and 1930’s clothing for a Great Gatsby event. Most were flapper dresses. The photos were great and we would have loved to have been there.  It was in the Washington, D.C. area.  We saw the photos and someone here said, “Let’s do that”.  Ok , we have an event in 2017 on the calendar. Start an umbrella collection  

Once you start you can’t stop.

Getting just one umbrella is not going to do it. You will start looking in vintage stores or online.  “Online” they tell me is like looking in a Bell telephone book.  So now you’re just going out shopping for something simple and wow you see it!   A new old looking umbrella?  Your mind is just going crazy, should I buy it or not?  Will it look good with anything I have?  If not, so what?  I could always use a new dress to go with it.  Buy it!  Do I need a fancy parasol or just a simple umbrella for my outfit?   Can I add special ribbon or lace to it to make it match my dress?  I think I need a couple more!

Walt Disney World April 16, 2016

Love the old cars and buses they pulled out of the Disney garage. We did not make time to ride them and get our picture taken but next time we will.  If you have some awesome photos or vintage photos and would like to share them with us on our web page let us know.  

Putting it all together

Make sure you have looked at some old movies. We love the old movies from the 1940’s. I look at the street scenes and check out the hats, dresses and don’t forget the shoes.  Every detail is important to complete your look. Hat should be on the list. Shoes - what can I say?   You have to have shoes to match the age you’re wearing. Jewelry, earrings and gloves always add to the look. Hair style for the right year. Umbrella or parasol even if the sky is clear. A cane is nice for men. Men also need to look at hats and neckwear, like ascots, bow ties or neck ties. The people all dressed nice back then and think of how hot it was in New York City with no air conditioning. The suits were wool and heavy.  I wonder where all the hats went?  Women’s and men’s hats, hundreds of them.  Where are they now?
