Who would like a re-do of 2020? I guess the better question would be who does not want a redo of 2020? It has definitely been a year to remember and absolutely one that will be written down in history books. Do you remember New Years’ last year?
We here at FashionEarsta Headquarters love our vintage style! So of course, we were so excited about the new Roaring ’20s! Then, pandemic. Everything was canceled and the world took on an eerily similar appearance as it did just a little before 1920. Our country had another version of prohibition seeing how hard it was for some people to get alcohol.
Yes, it has been a crazy year filled with obstacles, fear, and chaos that we never thought imaginable! So allow me to use these fabulous Blue Feathered Hidden Mickey Ears from Mouse Moxie (that were a Christmas present for my mom!) as my inspiration and share my comparison with you between the 1920s and the 2020s.
In 1918, the Spanish Flu Pandemic looked very similar to what we are going through now. It was on its way out by the end of 1919, but it infected at least 1/3 of the worlds population. As devastating as these numbers were, by the 1920’s people were ready to celebrate life and were ready to embrace the good life. New technologies, a booming stock market, and the war had ended, there seemed to be some normalcy returning to the United States and everyone was ready to be part of the party!
And let’s not forget the music! The Jazz age was a huge breakthrough in music that influenced and molded many artists that became the kings, queens, and godparents of the music that we love today! In a way, I feel that we have had a resurgence in music this past year. Not necessarily new artists, but since we have had the time to be at home, I think a lot of us have re-found our love for music. I myself have found 2 new artists that I am obsessed with and my love for George Harrison has grown abundantly!
I feel like today we are going through experiences similar to those our relatives went through 100 years ago. There seems to be a light at the end of our quarantined bubbles and I am holding on to my shredded hope that I will be able to book my trip to Disney World and not have to change my reservations, again! (Hey, 3rd time’s the charm, right!?)
My dream is that people will take note of the world that they have had to live in for the last year and act accordingly. This pandemic has been really tough, for some of us it has been harder than it has for others.
My hope is that people will enjoy each other more, that they will be kinder towards their fellow man, that they won’t take those date nights for granted, that they will appreciate their kid’s teachers on a whole new level, healthcare workers will ALL get super FAT raises, that people will think before they speak, and finally, that people will be kind and find new ways to help those that need help.
2020 may be over, FashionEarstas, but we still have 9 years of the 20’s left, lets make them AMAZING. Let’s just leave out that pesky “Great Depression” out of our story!
Happy New Year, FashionEarstas! May we leave this year with the knowledge of who we are, who we want to be and enter into the new year with a grateful heart.
A Note: It seems that our friends at Mouse Moxie are taking a little break as their store is currently unavailable. Check back in a few weeks to get a pair of their super great ears!
What We Loved
Excellent. These are beautifully spaced!
Excellent! The wonderful thing about these ears is that they can be worn for a variety of different reasons! Outfits can be coordinated along the lines of Can-Can, Pioneer, or Pirate!
Materials: Excellent! This is more of a teal than a blue color which makes it very unique and lovely. These adornments are of a nice weight!
Excellent. Nice Sturdy box and the ears were secured very well in bubble wrap this was a great way to protect them during the shipping process.
Excellent! The piece of velvet lining withing the headband keeps it from shifting around on my head! Great accent.
Excellent! No Bow, but such a beautiful feather feature.
Good. This one is hard because these ears were held up in transit. But we did get them within 2 weeks.
Excellent! The head band is lovely and the velvet lining really is a huge plus!
Who would love these?
Any FashionEarsta that is looking for a unique and unthemed pair of ears!
What Needs Work
Good.There is noticable bunching of fabric at the seam area on these ears.
Where should future FashionEarstas be seen in these ears?
The French Pavilion in Epcot comes to mind but maybe an even better choice would be the Hoop-Dee-Do Review at The Fort Wilderness Resort located in Walt Disney World.
Overall Score: (4.6/5.0)
