The Gatsby Affair

Once again, I dream of past decades...but, wow, this is definitely a time travel just off the New York Harbor, on the tiny Governors Island!
The Jazz Age Lawn Party, last saturday and sunday, celebrated the 1920s decade with music, dance demos, picnic on the grass and all the vintage paraphernalia.

It's my idea of heaven...
Do you really think there's a better way to celebrate the start of Summer?





Photos above: 1, 2, 3, 4.

...And none other than The Sartorialist attended the event too (photos below are from 2008 and 2007 editions)











So, are you ready for a Charleston lesson?!
