    I do so love these gowns. I have my Grandmother's wedding dress. She was married in 1923. I almost wish this style would come back!

    If leg warmer can come back in style why can't elegant vintage dresses like these come back too?

Women's dress was liberating, as the hemlines rose and the waistlines dropped. Evenings were spent at clubs and it was common to see ladies dancing the Charleston and Black Bottom.
