Lovely in T-Straps

The 1920's in America were times of great change. Coming out of the horrors of the First World War, society exploded in million different directions. The twenties saw women voting, the Harlem Renaissance, prohibition, and an incredible burst of affluence for the middle class. Automobiles and electric appliances made people's lives easier and gave them more leisure time.
A new breed of young women emerged in the twenties, referred to as Flapper. They wore short skirts, bobbed their hair, listened to the new Jazz music, and flaunted their disdain for what was then considered "acceptable" behavior. The flappers were seen as brash for wearing excessive makeup, driving automobiles, drinking, smoking and otherwise flouting conventional social and sexual norms.
In Short, Flappers were young, beautiful, fashionable women who knew how to have fun. Do you see where I'm heading with all this? T-Straps! What were you thinking? Those lovely Flappers wore lovely T-Strap shoes. Recently (or at this point not so recently) t-straps have made a major comeback and I do like them, oh, so much! I just can't seem to put them out of my head. No other shoes have ever made me feel this way.

Here are some nice T-Straps from Anthropologie
