Dinner & Dance - The Nite itself!



MORE PHOTOS TO SHARE WITH EVERYONE!
Theme of the night: Shanghai Grand (1920s)

Here's a little history to share with you all from Wikipedia:
The 1920s was the decade that started on January 1, 1920 and ended on December 31, 1929. It is sometimes referred to as the Roaring Twenties or the Jazz Age, when speaking about the United States, Canada or the United Kingdom. In Europe the decade is sometimes referred to as the "Golden Twenties" because of the economic boom following World War I.

The 1920s was the decade in which fashion entered the modern era. It was the decade in which women first liberated themselves from constricting fashions and began to wear more comfortable clothes (such as short skirts or pants). Men likewise abandoned overly formal clothes and began to wear sport clothes for the first time. The suits which men wear today are still based, for the most part, on those which were worn by men in the late 1920s


i was dressed as a 1920s flapper! - pearls, tassels, my ciggy stick and shiny helmet hair.
"In the 1920s, a new woman was born. She smoked, drank, danced, and voted. She cut her hair, wore make-up, and went to petting parties. She was giddy and took risks. She was a flapper. "


we had a swell time!
