The Great Gatsby

I was ecstatic when I was invited to Imperial Palace’s Client Appreciation Party last Saturday. What made it more awesome was the party theme… The 20’s! It’s the Jazz era people… This is my era!

The first thing that popped in my head was: Flapper, flapper, and flapper!!!! The 20’s girls sport their short hair with hats, feathered headpieces, matched with pumps, and flapper dresses. This is my vision of what I would look like if I were to be transported back to that awesome period!

I’m in the mood for some sepia to add to the theme of the 20’s! What do you think? Hehe.

This feathered piece was given as a gift from my “fashionista” friend! It completed the whole outfit dear! Thanks!

I’m not enticed by the whole “Pearl necklaces” look but the women of that time flaunted it. So I guess these candy colored beads with pearls would have to do! Oh and because it’s my good pal’s birth month, I decided to look a bit girly for the night.  What do you say? 😉

My friend told me the reason behind the flapper dress. It was like a feminist movement that time wherein girls wore heavy makeup, cut their hair short, and wore their dresses really short.  Don’t worry, I’m not starting a movement with my outfit! 😉

It was a grand event indeed full of cabaret dancers and jazz music. Sadly, they didn’t play any Louis Armstrong , Ella Fitzgerald, or Billie Holiday songs with a dash of Kenny G groove! 😦 If you’re not familiar with these singers, they’re the ones who sang “What a Wonderful World”, “At Last”,  and”Georgia On My Mind”.  I can’t complain though because I had a full stomach and I still had fun catching up with friends and simply enjoying the night away!

To more themed parties like these!
