While I put together my Tokyo coverage, let’s pop back to Florida for an outfit post. I didn’t visit any Miami Goth clubs earlier this year, but glammed up for Art Deco Weekend’s Speakeasy & Gala.

The invitation read: “Come as a Flapper, or come as you are. Dress like a Gangster, or a Silent Movie Star.” So I wore…

The party was held in a secret location. These two coat-tails gave me a secret key, and I stepped through the speakeasy doors…

It was fun to people-watch; quite a few party-goers got into the swing of the era.

We sampled wines, caviar and other delicacies.

We goofed around by posing like the paintings. Zack gives a Marlene Dietrich stare-down.

Have you ever been to a 1920s themed party? Or dressed like a flapper?
