Gatsby Summer Afernoon 2016

IMG_4348

It was my second time attending the beautiful Gatsby Summer Afternoon in Oakland, CA at the Dunsmuir Estate and the weather was perfect. I usually think of this event as a rare chance to wear some of my oldest vintage from the 1920s, but I really wanted to bust out my 30s feather capelet so I went for a late 30s early 40s look.

30s ostrich feather capelet, 40s floral rayon gown: SF Vintage Expo
30s straw tilt: Poppycock Vintage
lavender gloves: Alameda antique fair

I came with my beautiful friend Andrea who brought the bright and sunny color in her fruit print dress and perfectly matched bakelite and Remix Vintage shoes. The dress was a score from Racks Vintage in Sacramento, and the hat from ebay.

I loved all the mingling and visiting of picnics with new and old friends alike.  The time flew by!
