20s Jazz

Well the day my housemate and I had been waiting finally arrived! Our 20s Jazz themed houswarming party exceded our expectations, especially since everyone that came stayed with the theme! We had razzle, we had dazzle, we had feathers, fedoras and glitters! Despite the prohibition, our speakeasy bar flowed abundantly and the photobooth was a hit! With the best songs from Chicago, the Artist, the Great Gatsby, Boardwalk Empire and legitimate 20s decade music, the entertainement was definitely top game as we tried our best to perform the Charlseton dance. Finally, what stood out the most was the effort that the gals and lads put into their outfits: the fashion definitely fit the theme as the girls threw on their best fringe/sparkling dresses, their pearl necklaces and feather headbands, and the lads got decked out in their best suit with accessories fit for a 20s gangster!

Is it autumn already?

feel like I'm always writing about how fast time goes by. But seriously! IT FLIES BY! Saddly, I have been out of internet for the past couple months, so it hasn't been easy updating my blog. However, as I said in my last post, my 20's themed housewarming is coming up in just a few days. I've had my outfit ready for a couple weeks now and I felt like giving you all a small peak.

...eum... Hi there!

Fiou! Has it already been 3 months since my last post? Impossible! It cannot be! So much has happened since then, it's not so hard to believe how fast the time went by. I actually feel like it's all I've been talking about this year: how time flies by.

So what's new? Well I started a new job in July... It's sadly not fashion or teaching related, but I do believe it's the best job for me at the moment. And in early August, I moved in with one of my Irish girl friend and so far, I am having a blast! It is so nice to have a flatmate again! I really liked living on my own for a while: it's definitely something I've always wanted to try. But by the end, I couldn't help feeling a bit lonely and sick of myself.

So now, here I am, in a gorgeous house with a rock wall in the kitchen, a purple wall in the living room, a fancy bedroom, high ceiling, a beautiful bathroom...shall I go on? I could write a whole post on my new house, but that isn't want I initially wanted to do.

What actually gave me inspired me to write again on my blog is the housewarming party that we are planing. It's going to be happening in a few weeks from here and I have a feeling that it's going to be amazing! It's going to be themed and people are going to have to dress in the style of, wait for it... 20s Jazz! Yes! 20s glamour and glitz all around!

Since we've made it Facebook official and sent out invites only a couple days ago, I've been thinking of decor, dress, food, drinks, music, etc. non-stop.  Of course, I've created a Pinterest board just for the event (check it out here).

So I will definitely post more on the subject in the days to follow, but in the meantime, here are a few pictures that are serving as inspiration...
