Back in October, my friend Sarah launched a series on the “New Woman” of the 1920s. Today she posted another one on how the “New” woman handled make-up…and how she helped to normalize it within society via the magic of sex appeal! πŸ˜‰ It’s a great post. You can check it out here.

About lupachi1927

My name's Megan, and I'm a writer with an interest in history. While I might not be a real historian, I'm a very thorough researcher. This blog is my place to post about all the interesting historical tidbits I find that can't use in the novel I'm working on, which takes place in Chicago in 1927. If you're looking for research help, writing feedback, or just want to say hi, feel free to drop me a line! :)
