The Great Gatsby Party Returns! / by Cinthia Contreras

In December 2015, The Great Gatsby Party® transformed the gilded halls of New York City’s Capitale for the very first time. Nearly 2,000 guests turned up for the sold-out event, outfitted in the fashion of the Roaring Twenties--flapper dresses, silk gloves, tuxedos, top hats--to revel the night away under swinging aerialists and the glitter of disco balls. This year, by popular demand, the Great Gatsby Party returns for a two-night affair of the booze, fanfare, and decadence that so defined Fitzgerald’s celebrated novel. 

The Preparation

This year I decided not to do my own hair and make up guided by youtube jaja I opted to look for a spot where I could have those very important details in a Gatsby theme party done! So one of my food blog publicist recommended this newly open nice hair salon called The Club Dominik lead by master hairstylist Dominik Mager in Harlem, that has a bar and have make up services available! PERFECT! 

For my look since I have a fashion blog I didn't want to look like a had a costume on, so I chose a sequin gold dress with nude stilettos. For hair and make up I went for a "I can go anywhere like this" but with that magic Gatsby vibe.
