This is just a quick post for now, but I promise I will have some great photos to share with you tomorrow. In the meantime, here are a few fun shots from Governor’s Island, where A and I went to a 1920’s Jazz-Age Lawn Festival this past Saturday. There was good music, food and company. Overall, it was a very lovely day! What did you do this weekend? xoxo
I was on The Sartorialist today, catching up on the past few days worth of posts, and came across this cute girl. This photo was taken at Governor’s Island during the The annual Jazz-Age Lawn Party, which was this past Saturday and Sunday. I attended last year and had a blast, but sadly didn’t make it this time around. Maybe next year! If you haven’t been yet, I highly recommend you check it out!
P.S. I am working on a fun Get The Look for this outfit, so keep a look out for it tomorrow morning! SPxx
Back in early June, the boyf and I headed over to Governor’s Island to attend the Jazz-Age Lawn Party and Festival for some 1920’s enthusiast fun. People were decked to the nines in authentic apparel. There were dance lessons, croquet and tug of war games, and 1920’s motorcars on exhibit, to list a few. But, what was really fun, were all the folding tables set up with couture milliners pedaling all sorts of chic vintage hats and clothing. As I wandered along browsing through all the beautiful silk and lace items, I came across a booth called Charm School Design. They make these amazing feather headbands. I fell in love with everything at first sight, especially this piece, which is called “wide peacock eye feather headband.” Sigh…so gorgeous.
I have started to see feathers as an up and coming trend, and then today as I was getting my daily Sartorialist fix, I came across the photo below…her headband looked so similar to the ones I had seen at the festival, that I immediately went on the Charm School’s Etsy website and saw that it said the Sartorialist had in fact taken a photo of one of their customers…I wonder if this is she…
Elegant, yet with a twist of gladiator grit.
