Dress Ups: Gatsby/The Roaring 20's

In all honesty what girl doesn't love playing dress ups?!? Of course once you have the costume bit sorted that is!!

Last night a friend had her 21st birthday party themed 'The Great Gatsby' from the roaring 20's. I organised my outfit and my Mums outfit with limited funds and we had a ball!

The event was held at The Shamrock Hotel in Bendigo which was a perfect location. The decor was very era appropriate; diamonds littered tabletops and feathers shot out of flower displays. It really felt like it could've been the 20's!
The balcony was gorgeous, unfortunately a bit cold for most however my neck fur kept me quite warm so I made the most of the beautiful view when I could.

The outfits I put together were quite easy once I knew what I was looking for and it was definitely the accessories that made the outfit. Most of the stuff I already had! The outfits at the party were quite diverse too! I was very impressed. Penguin suits, flappers, a Dick Van Dyke (from Mary Poppins) look a like, glamorous divas, Madaàms etc
