shhh it’s a speakeasy

Just thought I would share a few photos from the Great-Gatsy-esque “Roaring 20’s” party we threw Saturday night.  The roommie and I did some premature decking of the halls, but instead of wreaths and holly, the walls wore feather boas and music notes…oldest cliché in the book, yes I know.  But what good is a Speakeasy without at least 3 decks of cards, countless strands of faux pearls, and enough plastic gold coins to win 3 games of Monopoly?  As over-the-top festive as our place looked, the roommie and I have decided to keep up most of the decorations because we were too lazy to take them down and pack them up they are so perfect for New Year’s Eve…especially our little mini mirror ball which tragically did not make it into any of these photos!  All the guests brought out their best flapper/gangster ensembles in celebration of a much needed week off from ballet, and let me tell you it was not in vain- we cranked up the swing music, busted our most enthusiastic Charlie Chapman moves and laughed more than an evil villain tying a damsel to some train tracks in a silent film.

{on me: Free People dress, Anthropologie headband/earrings, Steve Madden pumps, fur snood stolen from the hood of my Abercrombie kid’s winter jacket- yup you read that right}
