A 1920's Celebration

Art Deco Gatsby

I've always been intrigued by the delicate and glamorous style of the 1920's. I find myself gravitating towards things that shimmer, Art Deco patterns, muted colors, and feminine dresses. It's safe to say my love for this fashion time period started with The Great Gatsby--required reading as a sophomore in high school--thanks Ms. Goytia for  always broadening our knowledge. Anywho, I chose to celebrate my 22nd birthday at the Cicada Club in downtown LA. The club's entire architecture is reminiscent of the 1920's glamourous Art Deco architecture, with brilliant chandeliers, and hardwood dance floors. According to a coworker, who told me about Cicada, the club is known for it's live bands (from jazz orchestras to swing bands), and guests who come dressed to the nines in vintage attire (I think part of the new Great Gatsby movie with the dapper Mr. Dicaprio was filmed there). I can't wait for me and a group of friends to experience this magical place. For now, here's the outfit I've decided to celebrate in (ASOS scallop lace dress below!). I'll blog more pictures of the night and my outfit post-celebration!


  1. OMGAH I love the 1920s style! The costumes in the previews to "The Great Gatsby" are breathtaking...It's 1920s overload and then some! Those heels and Kate Hudson's whole outfit are my fave!!

    1. ME TOO! :) Love it so much. The Cicada Club, the one we went to in LA, was used for part of the filming of Great Gatsby. I can't wait to see the movie! I bought the heels at Kohl's for $20!
