I'd seen photos of the famous bi-annual Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governor's Island the last several years, and always kicked myself for not taking a bus up to New York to attend. Last weekend, I finally amended that mistake and am so glad I did. The music and dancing was fantastic and I loved seeing all of the modern day flappers and dapper gents walking around. I even saw Bill Cunningham and his trademark blue coat taking photos for the New York Times!

Have you seen the documentary about him yet? It's on my must-watch list.

Anyway, I'd definitely attend the Lawn Party again, but next time I'd make sure to bring a big blanket to sit on and pack a parasol and a picnic lunch....and brush-up on my charleston a little bit beforehand.

Since the only photos I took that day were either wide-shots or blurry, check out this blog for a ton of great ones that really capture the fashions and spirit of the day.
