The Great Gatsby

My sister, brother-in-law and my husband and I planned an extravagant night to New York City’s The Great Gatsby Party held in Downtown NYC. It is a black tie event and require to dress in full 1920’s era attire. It was so fun to play dress up and had the most wonderful time starting with a photo-shoot, fancy dinner and then a grand ballroom organized with amazing burlesque shows. We also met up with a group of friends there and celebrated a night of glamour and non-stop dancing! It was a beautiful night full of fabulous memories to cherish for a long time. (We forgot we were in 2017 the whole night!)
I chose a long drapey backless sequin rose-gold gown that was custom made at a local boutique. I then incorporated a lot of the 1920’s accessories like a rhinestone detailed hair comb (which by the way, my mom bought it for me all on her own in a small boutique she found for me for this particular event; she has the best taste!), art-deco rhinestone and pearl ring and bracelet sets, long pearl necklace wrapped three times, and sparkly chandelier earrings.I carried a rhinestone shimmery clutch and wore rhinestone rose-gold sandals to complete the look. I chose to do my own hair and make-up since I really enjoy doing it all! To add a dramatic 1920’s era vibe, I wore my hair up and styled a side bun with some strands of curled hair falling to the sides with LOTS of hairspray (along with about at least 30 bobby pins!) to hold up the rhinestone hair comb! I put on heavy dark smokey eye shadows in a mix of brown, rose-gold, gold and shimmery black. I also wore bright red lipstick with matching red (1 coat of Essie Forever Yummy and 2 coats of Lollipop) nails and toes to add a real pop in this otherwise all rose-gold glittery look. We all looked so gorgeous and the most important thing is that we really enjoyed it so much! It was simply epic!!!Exact pieces I wore:
