: A fund-raiser for the 2009 Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governor's Island. The Green Building events space is less then 10 minutes from where I used to live in Carroll Gardens. It's a great space, but has cement and not wood floor, and wood floor is always better for dancing. But the open bar let you forget about any aching feet ;)

My 1920's inspired outfit was all from things I had in my closet, except for headband, which I made from stuff in my sewing room on Sunday afternoon

Feathered headband:

  • Black lace over pink slip dress, black jet bead necklace: I bought both a while ago from Newport-News  
  • Marabou and Peacock feather fan  Eskay Novelty
  • Beaded evening bag: I bought a few years ago from wholesale/retail shop in Garment District, NYC
As part of the Gala's fundraiser, they had Silent Auction. I got out bid on a couple of items, but ended up with the winning bid for a Hey Sailor! Hat  It's a cute little cocktail hat with coral silk fabric rose and trim with bleached peacock feather, and cream coque feathers and cream veiling. The hat was also shown (on far left) in the Hey Sailor! Fashion show at dancesofvicenyc  (There were quite a few familiar faces from Dances of Vice events at the Gala).
