Whats a Gal to Wear to the Jazz Age Lawn Party

Every year we look forward to New York City's Jazz Age Lawn Party, an event Hosted by Michael Arenella and His Dreamland Orchestra, where Governor's Island is transformed for the weekend into a playground for frolicking Flappers and their fellows with great music, dancing, cocktails and more. 
Noble Savage Vintage will again be vending at this fabulous event and can you believe that it is just about two weeks away? My oh my, how time flies. So, what will we all where? 
Here are a few ideas for inspiration for the ladies and also for sale at Noble Savage Vintage on Ruby Lane. 

JUNE 14TH & 15TH
11:00AM to 5:00PM

This is a daytime event, so how about a 1920s day dress in a lovely cotton net lace with a silk liner. Cool and airy for those hot afternoon temperatures. This dress and others, perfect for daytime wear, are available in the shop's 1920's section.

Not all ladies are into dresses, and guess what; you don't have to wear a dress. Knickers were also popular and acceptable for daytime and sporting wear. Paired with a middy, or a crisp cotton blouse, or or maybe raise an eyebrow or two in a saucy little camisole as it will likely be warm. (If this pair of knickers is not your size, you could always try these windowpane plaid linen plus fours in a 29" waist.)

Whether you wear a vintage inspired modern dress or true vintage, Sometimes the perfect authentic period purse can help to set the mood. This early 1930's purse is fabricated in a lovely Nile Blue velveteen with an embossed frame. It's unique frame is double hinged and has a square opening. Sturdy and yes, roomy enough for your i phone. 
This and other flapper friendly purses can be found in the shops Handbags and Purses section. 

Some figures are more flattered by the 1930s silhouettes. Take a look at the 1930s section of the shop for more Jazz Age day dresses in silks and cottons. 
This wheat Print cotton voile dress is a wonderful choice for the day and the necklace pictured can be found in the shops jewelry section

Don't forget to stop by our booth at the Jazz Age Lawn Party. I have so much more coming in in the next few weeks. Hope to see you there.
