For my birthday at the end of last year, I told my friends to pretend it was any year between 1920 - 1940 and hence dress (and act) accordingly for my birthday party. We went to Centennial Park, we played croquet, had Pimms and lemonade, danced to classic tunes and ate cucumber sandwiches. Frankly, my friends did an amazing job as you can see just from digging about in their wardrobes.
I wore a beautiful 1930s Maxi Dress from Dear Golden with art deco star hair pins, blue glass filigree cocktail ring and filigree bangle from Jean Jean Vintage. And of course, if you're looking for a similar bob style for long hair, check out my tutorial here. My art deco necklace was from Lauren Rose Design - which is coincidentally where Astin got her art deco filigree onyx ring you can see her wearing. She also showed up in an authentic 1920s dress with jazz instruments printed on it, which was pretty fantastic.
I'm glad everyone was so sporting about the whole thing. Next year, heaven knows what theme I'll have. Downton Abbey Dinner, Mid-Century Mad Cocktails or perhaps a Jane Austen Ball?
