    This weekend, I attended the Gatsby Summer Afternoon, hosted by the Art Deco Society of California. The idea is to re-create an elegant afternoon 1920s party like the ones Jay Gatsby would host in F. Scott Fitzgerald's famed novel. Everything at the party, from the clothing to the cars, had to look or feel like the time between 1920 and the '40s pre-World War II.

    One of the highlights of the annual picnic is the "Great Gatsby Bathing Beauty Revue" featuring the DecoBelles. Wearing vintage swimsuits that seem incredibly modest these days with knee socks and heels, these lovely ladies performed a chorus-line style dance to "The Sentimental Gentleman from Georgia."
