Well, it's back to the grind after a lovely, lovely weekend. But before I jump into this week, I wanted to share a few shots from this weekend's activities. Dan and I attended a friend's 30th birthday party that had a Great Gatsby theme. It was wonderful! We dressed up in our best 1920's inspired garments and laughed the night away.
It didn't have a sparkly flapper-esque frock to wear for the night and couldn't really find anything on our thrifting excursion last weekend so I opted for an emerald green dress that I re-constructed a few years back out of a full length, long sleeved 1980's dress.

I set my hair in pin curls, pinned it up and topped the style off with the perfect bit of sparkle thanks to my Giant Dwarf
|LOVE this photo of Dan! BEST.|
Dan went as dapper as can be, fashioning his pants into plus fours (or knickers) and pairing them with a vintage wool vest and a handmade bow tie made by me! (More info on that later this week!)
Once Sunday rolled around I was pretty much dead to the world as I had one too many glasses of champagne punch. It was delicious, but sneaky. I did find the energy to complete a project I've been wanting to tackle for the wedding:
DIY Swizzle Sticks! Here is a snap shot from yesterday:
I plan on posting a materials list and a link to the tutorial that I followed later on this week as well. Thanks for reading- I hope your weekend was just as fabulous!
