the Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governor's Island is one of my favorite summer outings, because it involves theme dressing, a ferry ride, and yummy food. laura (aka the new age of innocence) & i share a passion for all three of these things, which is why she was the perfect companion for this adventure.
both of us took modern approaches to the 20s theme, which made dancing to the Dreamland Orchestra on a crowded dance floor a little bit easier. we also drank St. Germaine cocktails, ate ice cream & popcorn, & ooooo'd at lots of great outfits. the highlight, however, was the island itself. and getting to stroll through the buildings and art installations on a beautiful summer day.
