K. & I were catching up on Downton Abbey before we left for the party, and I thought I'd pin my hair into something Mary-like at the nape of my neck. But my hair wasn't co-operating, so I decided to use this opportunity to wear one of my wigs. Although in this case I think maybe I ended up looking like some crazy combination of Marilyn Monroe and Lady Edith, we still had a great time drinking some "hooch" with our fun & stylish friends.

I'd be remiss if I didn't include some images of the gorgeous bday girl, Rachel and our dapper friend Olivia! Rachel's ensemble for the evening was incredible, and she even managed to create her own headband from a feather she'd found at a local park. And Olivia was really bringing the 20s swagger.
