Dreamland Gala

Last night I attended the Dreamland Gala, a fundraiser for the 2009 Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governor's Island. The event was a blast with live music from Michael Arenella and his Dreamland Orchestra, open bar from Court & Spark, a silent auction, and the crowd dressed in their best Roaring 20's looks! Here are some pics I'd like to share.

The coolest car.

Michael Arenella and his megaphone.


My outfit shot. I wore a peach charmeuse mini dress with lace pin-tucked bib from my former clothing label, Ouvrez La Porte. A vintage velvet cutout robe. Fogal back seamed hosiery that did not survive the night. Tassel necklace that once belonged to my Grandmother. My At The Speakeasy feather headband. A vintage black beaded raffia clutch. And black satin shoes with rhinestones from Nina.

I always wanted to be a cigarette girl, or in this case chocolate girl!

I love spats!

Lingerie for decor.
If you'd like to see more photos from the Dreamland Gala please check my flickr page. I will be posting more photos there in the next few days.
