It's Swell

 



I spent Saturday on the Isles of Shoals (Star Island, to be specific) with The Swell Society for their "Gatsby on the Isles" event.

* Top to bottom, I made my dress using Folkwear's 1927 Tea Frock.

The band was mighty fine.

* Also, wouldja' look at that view. No matter how long I live here, the Atlantic always manages to make me go weak in the knees. But then again, that could also be a side-effect of gallivanting all over a rocky ocean outcropping wearing period shoes. Yee-ouch.

All in all, though, a top-notch outing and one of the very best Saturday's in recent memory, complete with gorgeous weather and delightful company. I think Jay Gatsby would have been duly impressed.
