Dear Bata Shoe Museum:

If you're going to organize a lecture series on fashion during the Roaring Twenties, maybe don't hire someone who's knowledge of the history of fashion during this era comes from reading the backs of Boardwalk Empire and Downton Abbey DVD sleeves. And maybe don't admit to the packed lecture hall of people who payed $16.00 for one hour of your time that you only just read the description of the lecture you're giving the night before and, thus, didn't know until last night that examples of 1920's millinery (which is WHY I WAS THERE IN THE FIRST PLACE) were to be included.

I mean, Jesus *Christ*, the elimination of the corset alone? IS A BIG FUCKING DEAL. AND SHOULD NOT BE TREATED AS A FOOTNOTE.

Luckily, the day was saved by the adorably excited tour guide who used the word "whimsical" no less than fifty times during the tour. Anyone who gets that enthusiastic about Bolshevik red heels from 1924 needs to be kept in my pocket *forever* because that's just way too happy-making to be believed.

But, yeah. For future reference, that lecturer should be tarred and feathered.

No, I will not need that information regarding a full membership, but thanks for asking,

Me.
