THESE BRIGHT YOUNG THINGS

Photobucket

When the lovely folk at Jersey Pearl gifted me the gorgeous 2-metre strand necklace from their Twenties collection (worn above with faux pearl and diamanté necklace from Martine Webster), I knew within a second the perfect occasion for their début: A prohibition-era themed country party. Our 'speakeasy' was a spectacular barn, and everyone seized the occasion in costume - I've gotten so into the fancy dress party trend now that I always get a little disappointed if there isn't one. 
I've read and re-read Evelyn Waugh's Vile Bodies and the Fitzgerald novels enough times to develop a serious desire to host my own Bright Young Things party for many moons now, and Ned & Jamie's prohibition soirée (wrong continent, right epoch) was the best opportunity I've had to indulge in my Gatsby's party dream, complete with genuine classic car. 
There is something so inherently sophisticated about wearing pearls, especially real pearls (they're my first!). My Jersey Pearls have a sublime lustre to them and are beautifully strung and knotted in silk. I'm bewitched.

This looks like sooo much fun!! The pearl strand is amazing. I dressed up 20's style for halloween and it was a ball.. I love that you had a themed party as another excuse to dress up!

Imogen, what GORGEOUS photos. It looks like such a fun event. I love pearls, by the way: I'm going to start wearing mine - a lovely, good pair, a gift from my husband when we were in NY - all the time now. Good for Jersey Pearl for gifting it to you - I'll check out their site - and how fabulous, and in wonderful character of you - to create a themed party around it!

Also really spooky: I've been meaning to do a post titled Bright Young Things for a few weeks now, and today - a rainy Saturday morning - was my moment. I will link to this post. Actually, can I steal a photo, too? xxx
