Flappers And Philosophers.

"Either you think, or else others have to think for you and take power from you, pervert and discipline your natural tastes, civilize and sterilize you."
-F. Scott Fitzgerald

F. Scott Fitzgerald was a contradiction to convention. He spoke directly to his generation, exposing seedy truth behind social hierarchies while unveiling the modern age across The States. His works make you feel powerful and weak, hopeful yet hopeless. Today, on the birthday of this magnificent author, celebrate with me by looking back at some of the original cover art that adorned his great works, and the outfits fitting for them in our modern age!

The great tales Fitzgerald told never withheld the truth. They cause you to stare directly inward and see who resides at the heart of your being. Take pride in what you find there. How boring to be the same! It's a great thing to find yourself, but a greater thing still to share it with the world...
