ADSC: How to Gatsby Women's Accessories 1931 Sears Roebuck Catalog - This illustration is a 1931 dress and what looks like a 20s hat. There was a brief transition between the flat figure of the 20s and the tailored 30s where you could wear a cloche (or cloche-ish) hat with the 30s silhouette. You may never wear a 30s hat with a 20s dress; the look didn't phase out that way. By Karen Geer & The Fashion Salon Team. Without accessories a dress is just a dress, more importantly without accessories and lady is not a lady. Women in the 20s and 30s never left the house without hat, gloves and handbag. The right accessories makes a so-so dress into a smashing Gatsby success. Hats The cloche (a French word meaning bell) is what we think of for the '20s. Big garden party hats flatter everyone and offer sun protection. The 30s hats are shallow and sit jauntily atop the head at an angle. Parasols Don't forget your parasol! Glasses Round frames (horn rims or metal) were worn by men and women with no style difference between the sexes. Gloves

Analysis of Shakespeare's Sonnet 18 - Shall I Compare Thee to a Summer's Day Did You Know? ... A sonnet is in verse form and has fourteen lines of iambic pentameter.

interesting News flash!! Most young girls across America say Marilyn Monroe is their all-time hero. Elegant Audrey Hepburn comes in a distant second in the Screen Goddess Sweepstakes. We demand a recount. Let's take a closer look at both actresses. Marilyn Monroe's horrendous beginning PARALYZED her right up to the end of her life. She dreamed of a fame that would bring her the love of millions. Gossip columnist Walter Winchell once wrote: "Hollywood is a place where they put you under contract instead of under observation."

As a fully grown sex symbol, Marilyn Monroe inflicted the tyranny of her mental illness on co-stars and directors. The movies made her a celluloid idol, but left many battlefield casualties. Poor Marilyn.

Though it meant a break with the high-minded art-for-art’s-sake ethos espoused by his mentor Alfred Stieglitz (a break viewed as treachery by Stieglitz and his friends), he leapt at the chance, having come to the conclusion that photography’s natural — and therefore true — function was utilitarian: a thoroughly modern means of human communication. "The fashion plates Steichen produced make for a full archive of modernist fashion of the inter-war years.
