Last week I
had the pleasure of attending a Great Gatsby party thrown by the
Squantum Club. The girls donned their best sparkly dresses, piling on
the jewels and pearls, while the boys opted for sophisticated looks that
would have made even Daisy Buchanan swoon. The night was lively and
festive, featuring a live band as well as dance performances straight
out of the twenties. We avoided pools, tried our best to live in the
present, and hit the dance floor with our best Charleston. By the end of
the night, we all agreed there ain’t no party like a Gatsby party!

    Everyone looks super gorgeous and photogenic. The rose gold shoes paired really well with your beautiful dress, and that head gear just brings the ' gatsby look' together as a whole! x

  18. Lyn on August 1, 2013 at 11:57 pm

    You're all looking stunning ! Normally I really don't like parties with a theme (think Disney, Barbie, etc) but this one is amazing, especially because it's about the 20's, love that style but it's difficult to wear in real life.
    I think you had lots of fun πŸ™‚ xx
