The boyfriend is a huge jazz lover (he plays jazz guitar) and he has been introducing me to a style of music I didn't know much about. I come from a jazz family (my aunts are jazz singers), but I myself am definitely a novice. After a very educational visit to The Jazz Century exhibit at Quai Branly last year, I am slowly learning to appreciate jazz more and more. While my ear is still not as finely tuned as the boyfriend's, everything about the Jazz Age fascinates me! I even threw him a Jazz Age-themed birthday party last year! What's not to love about the Roaring Twenties? The fashion! The music! Everything! What I wouldn't give to have been a member of the Lost Generation, or to dance the Charleston in a smokey jazz hole in Chicago! Fabulous!
I live right down the street from Cafe de Flore and Les Deux Magots, the famous haunts of Hemingway, Fitzgerald and other members of the Lost Generation.
The hair, the makeup, the clothes!
Mirroed vanities and jewelry boxes are my absolute faves. I got a gorgeous jewelry box from the boyfriend for Christmas!
Not quite Jazz Age, but fabulous nonetheless!
