Boardwalk Empire

Every since I saw Boardwalk Empire posters plastered across Los Angeles about a year ago, I've wanted to watch the HBO show. Only, I don't have HBO and it's not yet on DVD. Of course, right?

There's something so intriguing about the roaring 20s - the speakeasies, Oxford shoes, feathers, diamonds - it just seemed like a secret lavish world that I'd want to be a part of. And who knows, maybe I would have been. After all, I did learn that an LA speakeasy operated as the fake business "Morrissey's Hair Salon". Maybe one of my distant relatives had a booming business during the days of prohibition? ;)

Anyway, with my love for flappers and desire to see Boardwalk Empire, I decided to feature the photos from September 2010 that Vanity Fair took of the show's women. Loving these pictures!







Have you seen the show? What are your thoughts? And what about the fashion of the time? Would it have been your style?

Be sure to share your fashion post today by linking up with Kori of Blonde Episodes for Fashion Friday!

I have no seen the show because like you, I do not have HBO. I really haven't heard of it either because I mainly stick to my reality trash tv. Sad, but true. I love these pictures though, so cute!

I LOVE all these pictures! My dad and brother were really into Boardwalk Empire, but I never got around to watching it. I'll definitely have to give it a try though, because I've heard nothing but the best things about it (and I LOVE the fashion from that era!).
Love this post, my dear.

The show is so great but I have to tell you nothing can top these amazing images. Wow.

The fashion of that time would have absolutely been my style. Geof watches this show and I kind of get what's going on just because I'm usually on my computer when he watches it. I love that it takes place in Atlantic City! The third photo in this post is so pretty :)
