Great Gatsby

These photos are a bit belated, but the outfits were just too good not to share. At the beginning of March Scott and I got dressed up for Courtney and her twin brother Phil's Great Gatsby themed birthday party at The Duce in Phoenix.

Even though Scott and I's outfit might have not exactly match the era (I really wanted a flapper dress for the night!), we sure did have fun wearing some fancy clothes and sipping on cherry sodas with our sweet friends.

I'm kind of in love with this dress! I love the gold, shimmery tone, the pleats, the triangle belt, and the tie on the back of the dress. I scored it on super sale at Jcpenney and can't wait to wear it again!

Scott looked pretty dashing in his red suspenders! I swear, he LOVES a good suspender! Do any of your guys rock suspenders?

Today is another busy, busy day, but I've had my iced coffee (and maybe a blueberry croissant as well) and I'm ready to take on the day (errr, afternoon!). What are you guys up to today? Is it getting really hot where you live? It was soooo hot in Phoenix yesterday! Oh my!

  1. I love the triangle belt detail! Great looks you two!

  2. Love that dress! I need to shop at JC Penney more often. I actually found a great bathing suit there this weekend.

  3. That dress is amazing! As is the entire ensemble. Great Gatsby is one of my favorite books and I so wish I could attend this kind of theme party!


  4. Gorgeous photos! I love the gold dress :)


  5. Great outfits, I am a big supporter of suspenders on men :)

    That dress is amazing the color really makes your skin glow...and it's just really simple but elegant!

  6. You and Celeste are right--suspenders on guys is always a good idea. And I firmly support classic literature theme parties. Except a "Heart of Darkness" party might be terrible, now that I think of it.
