After spending a large portion of the summer at the height of biker chic fashion, I jumped at the opportunity to get gussied up and be seen sans helmet hair at the Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governor's Island this past weekend.
Michael Arnella and his Dreamland Orchestra provided the music.
It was the perfect day for wool bathing costumes.
Did I mention that there were Champagne cocktails as well?
I found all the vintage fashions so inspiring. Delicate little crocheted gloves, felted wool cloches, beads and ribbons and lace and feathers. T-strap shoes and knee-high stockings with tiny flasks tucked in the top. The women looked stunning and the men looked dapper and dashing.
Back to reality this week. Ah well.
