“And I like large parties. They’re so intimate. At small parties there isn’t any privacy.”
– F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
Last night, my husband and I went to a Great Gatsby-themed party for our friend’s birthday. Her beautiful house was built in the 20’s and made the perfect setting for a jazz age soirée. Let’s just say that as a former theater geek, I take costume parties quite seriously. I found a cute and affordable fringe dress from Forever 21 and styled the look with accessories from Baublebar and ASOS. For a vintage touch, I brought a beautiful, pearl-embellished coin purse that once belonged to my great-grandmother and was given to me for our wedding.
