“You know, sometimes all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage. Just literally twenty seconds of just embarrassing bravery. And I promise you, something great will come of it.”

Sometimes I feel like I’m living in a nervous life. I get so nervous to do little things. Talking to new people scare me. I feel like I’m just going to embarrass myself and melt into a puddle of embarrassment. And this quote is talking about just do the things that make you scared and nervous, that gives you butterflies on you stomach cause after a few seconds you see that’s probably not that bad. And if it is you get to say you did it.

The Roaring Twenties

Fashion

Women wanted to be small and thin. They wanted smaller breast  and a straight figure. They started to show off their legs during the 1920s. Their dresses would be sleeveless and nothing higher than the knees. The dresses would be baggy so that their cruves would be hiden. They would wear very bright colors with fringers and beading.   The hair style was bobbed hair-cut with curled at the forward towards the ear and spilt through the middle.

“Nobody ever listens to a teenager. Everybody thinks you should be happy just because you’re young. They don’t see the wars that we fight every single day. And one day, my war will end. And I won’t die. And I will not tolerate abuse from anyone. I am strong.” – Freedom Writers

I feel like a lot of teens relate to this. A lot of people don’t really listen to teenagers because they feel like teens should be having the time of their life cause they don’t have a lot of things to worry about. But people don’t understand that there is so much pressure put on us, at school and home. Teens are also so considered young adults but I don’t think some people consider that teens sometime just need someone to listen to their problems, to listen to what they are going through cause some people feel like it’s not a big deal, that it will just pass. They are probably right that it will pass and it isn’t a big deal but to just be able to let it out is nice. People don’t really let teens speak and when they do they see that we do have something to say, that we have gone through things and we are fighting our own battles. We’re teenagers we don’t know the road ahead of us, I don’t think anyone does but us teens are learning how to get through life and learning where do we want to take our life.

1900’s Victorian

Fashion

During this time people dressed very elegant. Women would wear long dresses and under they would wear corsets. Corsets would showing women’s social status and their figure of youth. These were seen as support for the weaker gender. Also they were criticized to be uncomfortable and unhealthy. Health professionals would believe that corsets causes cancer, birth defects and miscarriages. It would also cause women to faint due to to all the air in their lungs being emties out. This time the hourglass look was the popular look so women would add extra flounces on to their skirts to widen the hourglass silhouette. They would also wear many layers of  petticoats.

Cars

During this time not everyone would be able to drive. To be able to drive you need a degree in technical dexterity and mechanical skill. Also they would have to wear certain clothing that include a hat, gloves, duster coats, goggles, and boots. The people who you drive would be very adventurous because they would have to be out in every kind weather and they would be unprotected. It was not easy bing one of the drivers because there was a short supply of gasoline and the tires would easily break and they were exhausting to repair.

I really like this window display, it’s very simple and still catches your attention. I love how the images on the television get lighter as you look down. The two mannequins on the right were a good touch so there to get rid of negative space, same with the bag and the shoes. Also having the mannequin was a good touch so that the display it is balanced out with the two mannequins. Overall I do like this display for it’s simplicity.
