10 Things I Wish I’d Known Before I Tried 1920s Names

In the 1920s, people dressed up in extravagant clothing and wore their hair long. I wanted to experience this time period first-hand, so I created a name-swap account on Instagram to see what it would be like. It was an amazing experience. Here are ten things that I wish someone had told me before I tried the name swap:

It’s a lot of work to search for vintage clothes and accessories. But it is SO worth the effort! I recommend searching on Etsy, eBay, and at thrift stores first before you go shopping online.

I learned that there are tons of different eras in history besides the 1920s – 1950s are also really fun (and easy) to try out new names with since they’re less formal than Victorian era clothing. Plus, the prices are way cheaper too!

The best part about using your phone or tablet camera as a mirror is that you can use Snapchat filters when styling yourself up for an outfit post like this one: __ from my 1920s name swap account! The hula hoop filter is the best one ever.

It’s so easy to make your own blog header using a free website like Canva (if you want it to look professional), or even just Google Images if you’re on an iPhone and don’t have any apps downloaded! I used this image for my 1920s name swap account: __, which is from 1906 in France. Basically everything I did was through google search so there are no paid tools needed at all!

I’ve learned that makeup styles change with each era – apparently most of the time people didn’t wear much makeup during the Victorian Era but they had more fun with their eyebrows than we do now! My favorite trick is applying red lipstick before putting my powder foundation on top to get that perfect, 1920s look.

Be careful about what you like – I started following a lot of amazing fashion bloggers on Instagram and before long my feed was basically just one person after another with the same style..so now I’m selectively following people who have different styles to mix it up! This is where it’s good to know your own personal tastes!

You’ll also notice how much our vernacular changes through time – in 2018 we say “BFF” for best friends forever but back then they called them “bosoms”! It makes me realize how quickly language evolves over generations and that’s kind of cool seeing old words come back into everyday use again.

oop filter is the best one ever.

Another thing I’ve learned is the importance of a good filter. If you want to achieve that perfect, 1920s look – then an oopfilter (short for Instagram) is the best one ever. It blurs out all the imperfections and leaves just what’s needed behind! Give it a try if you need some inspiration on ways to make your images more beautiful too.

Use textured filters: Use them sparingly for an overall effect OR use it heavily in one particular shot of the outfit. Make sure you take some time editing your image before uploading (because let’s be honest – apps like Instagram do not edit photos like Apple Photos)

There’s no right or wrong way to style your hair. It is all about preference but try experimenting with new ways of wearing it every day so you can find what works best for you!

Beware the “white girl” look: 1920s fashion is NOT just a white dress and messy waves. There are SO many different styles that don’t even include dresses at all, such as heavy vintage sweaters in plaid fabrics tucked into high waisted trousers, wide brimmed fedoras with ribbon ties, loose tops paired with leather riding jackets..etc.

If you’re struggling for inspiration – browse through self made Pinterest boards by fellow bloggers who have already found their own personal style.

Don’t be afraid to wear the same outfit more than once – just let your hair and makeup evolve each time! A vintage dress is a timeless piece that never goes out of style so it’s worth investing in something you can get maximum mileage from;)

It concludes with one statement stating that people shouldn’t feel bad if they want to repeat outfits but change up their appearances by adding new accessories or redoing their hair and makeup each time. The article mentions wearing the same outfit multiple times without being ashamed because some

The first thing I wish Iโ€™d known before changing my name is that the 1920s are one of those decades where it actually matters what decade you’re from. There’s a lot more to consider than just picking an old-timey sounding, vaguely European name like Elizabeth or Frederique and ending up with something like Elizabetta or Fridericka (which might be fun for your D&D character but not so much as a middle schooler).

This is because the 20th century was full of huge social changes that impacted people’s names (e.g., immigration patterns), which didn’t happen in the 19th century when most common given names were predetermined according to gender by religion, family origin, location, profession, or wealth. So just because your name is Charlotte in the 21st century doesn’t mean it’ll be that way for you when you’re a 19th-century maiden (or 20th-century woman). You might have to go with something different if there’s an overlap like Caroline and Carrie. Donโ€™t get too attached to that idea of having a โ€œprettyโ€ sounding old nameโ€”it may not work out as planned! And while we are on this subject: The second thing I wish I’d known before changing my name was how many people actually had given names starting with “A.” It seems like most girls’ names start with A, so picking an unusual letter other than A would
