Le Blog de Sushi: Gatsby Winter Ball

{ Gatsby Winter Ball }

Since starting swing dancing with Swing Patrol about a month ago, I've had more opportunities to get dressed up because of all the balls and events that have been held during the Melbourne International Jazz Festival. With the Great Gatsby movie coming out earlier this month, 20's fever seems to be setting in and a lot of the events have been 1920's themed. Luckily my workplace has the perfect dresses for these kind of special occasions, so I bought my beaded flapper dress from there!

Oh how very lovely!!!
I'm all about the 20's and find it kinda crazy but so thrilling that the whole 20's thing is roaring wild again since the Great Gatsby release. My sister and her husband are professional swing and lindy hop dancers and I've always wanted to pick it up but never find the time, but it is so sweet to hear you have!!
