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.
Honora Forscutt shows off her vintage bathing suit and Bakelite bracelets. She says her shoes weren't vintage, but she fixed them up to look '30s-style. Her shades are also reminiscent of the wacky beach sunglasses that were all the rage in the '30s and '40s.
