1920s Flapper: Face powder & Traveling in Style
Flapper on vacation! Traveling this month? This mid-1920's advertisement for face powder captures the luxury of travel on the great ocean liners, or even a ferry boat. The ad states, "In all countries and in all climes- on land and on sea--Bourgois" This is Java face powder by A. Bourjois & Co., New York and Paris.
Traveling in style, her outfit has classic details: deep buttoned cuffs, high buttoned collar and a low slung cloche style hat with a bit of her bob peeking below the brim. Wrapped up against the ocean breeze, only her nose needs a bit of powder.
