event: great gatsby party

{Dan & I at the cocktail party in Em's room}

This past weekend our friend Nicolle of Thriving Wives celebrated her birthday with a Great Gatsby themed party. It was so much fun finding a dress and putting mine and Dan's outfits together. I found my dress at ASOS, tights at Forever21 and I made my headpiece (see DIY below). For Dan we found his hat, bow-tie and vest at H&M and he wore his suit from his brother's wedding (bonus!!!). Emilia hosted a lovely cocktail hour in their room at the Biltmore Hotel before heading over to the party hosted by Drink Eat Play at the Park Plaza. The event was massive and put together very well - we loved sampling all of the signature drinks in the VIP lounge and dancing from ballroom to ballroom.
