Fashionably Late: A Speakeasy Affair

Remember last week, when I posted my book review on The Diviners? This week, I thought I would continue with the Roaring Twenties trend and share with you an outfit I wore to a speakeasy-themed party. Be warned: I may go overboard on the '20s slang, so don't take me too seriously.

In December, I surprised Matt with tickets to a Speakeasy party at a local winery, Stone Tower. The event was held to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the repeal of prohibition, AND it was to celebrate a release of Stone Tower's first sparkling wine.

Matt and I had already dressed up as a flapper and a gangster for our Halloween party, so of course our costumes were on the trolley.

Isn't this dress just the bee's knees?

And how!

We sure had a swell time.

If I had a time machine, I would definitely go to a party in the 1920s--I think it would be the cat's particulars!

My outfit details are below; if you're interested, Matt's ensemble came from Indochino--it was actually his wedding suit. I would highly recommend Indochino to anyone, for any special occasion; you send in your measurements and you get a tailor-made suit in return.
