Inspired by: Jazz Age

Ever since Leo brought back Gatsby, the Roaring Twenties have been on fire, old sport. New York City is celebrating and paying tribute to the Jazz Age (how can a decade be so lucky as to have more than one fanciful name?!) in the only way we know how… with a party, bien sur! If you’ve had a chance to peep our summer series, you’ve heard about the Jazz Age Lawn Party that took place this past weekend on Governor’s Island. Many New Yorkers (and a few artfully coiffed, vintage-clad Journelles) spent the days strolling under parasols, sipping prohibition-era cocktails, and swinging away in front of a big jazz band; ladies decked out in pearls + fringe and the gents gussied up in tweed + bow ties. We’d like to think Daisy¬†was the inspiration, so here’s to the flappers, the fashion, the coupes of champs, and the music that created such a sensation. Here’s to the ’20s, and here’s to the Jazz Age.
