Jazz Age Lawn Party - Governor's Island, New York
IT'S BEEN A WHILE!
THIS WEEKEND I HAD THE INCREDIBLE OPPORTUNITY TO ATTEND THE JAZZ AGE LAWN PARTY FOR THE FIRST TIME! WHAT AN EXPERIENCE!
For the last ten years, the party has been one of the most celebrated summertime attractions in New York, where people put on their best roaring 20's get-ups and dance the Charleston. The party is lead by the event founder Michael Arenella and his Dreamland Orchestra. There are also many different dance performances going on all day.
ST-GERMAIN AND MARTINI & ROSSI PROVIDED PRE-PROHIBITION COCKTAILS. THE FESTIVAL ALSO FEATURED A ’20S CAR EXHIBITION, DANCERS THE DREAMLAND FOLLIES, CHARLESTON LESSONS, LOBSTER ROLLS AND ICE CREAM. I ALSO WANTED TO SHARE SOME PICTURES AND LET YOU ALL KNOW THAT I WAS ABLE TO PUT TOGETHER A COOL RECYCLED/UP-CYCLED 1920'S GET-UP FOR LESS THAN $60! THE DRESS WAS FROM PAULINA'S CLOSET ON ETSY, THE PEARL NECKLACE IS FROM THEPOOKIESJEWELRYBOX! I MADE SOME CHANGES TO THE DRESS MYSELF (REMOVED THE PUFFY SLEEVES).
THE ACCESSORIES WERE ALL FROM DIFFERENT ESTATE AND YARD SALES - WHICH MEANS THEY WERE ALSO ALL AUTHENTIC VINTAGE - AND THAT INCLUDES A PICNIC BASKET! I AM ADDING THE LINKS HERE JUST IN CASE YOU'D LIKE TO CHECK THEM OUT:
