Jazz Age Lawn Party Looks

This weekend, the 11th Annual Jazz Age Lawn Party will glamorously take you back to the Roaring Twenties via the ferry (aka time machine) to Govenor's Island. A summertime highlight, it is one of my favorite events in NYC...a lovely reward for what felt like 6 months of winter. Need a little help figuring out what to wear, see gallery below highlighting some of my favorite looks from parties past:

VINTAGE-STYLE LINGERIE FOR BRAZEN BEAUTIES

Coco Romper
165.00

Dirty Mermaid Beauty has found her kindred spirit in Blackbird Underpinnings of Oakland. Also inspired by the daring flappers of the roaring twenties and the fierce, able ladies of the tumultuous thirties, Blackbird Underpinnings brings you locally crafted intimates in the San Francisco Bay Area, with a touch of the renegade feminine. From lounging, dancing, reading, or play, this sensuous silk charmeuse romper is the essence of comfort and luxury. The COCO ROMPER (featured in champagne) is named for the French designer and self-made business woman. Forever changing the face of style, she built an empire, popularized comfort and autonomy, and truly defined timeless elegance. 100% Silk.

And, if you happen to be there this weekend with VIP tickets, you will find Dirty Mermaid swag in your tote: the Siren Spring Soak. So draw a bath with your Bonnie or Clyde...or Gatsby...whomever your type!!!
