A Gatsby Affair

Sorreh sorreh. Hello 2012, mental Christmas with hospital visits and the like unfortunately, back to University, work shifts, catching up with friends, sorting the house out...and so forth. but here's some pretty photos now I'm a bit free-er.

The Great Gatsby is one of my favourite books. I like it when my friends make an effort and dress up. It was my 20th Birthday. The evident outcome...?

A Very Gatsby Affair...

Jazz Music, bow ties, pearls, feathers, raspberry-based home made cocktail (accompanied by compliments!), candles, sparklers, attempts at the Charleston (my friend Fiona is really very good)...

great gatz
