When I heard that Cargo Edinburgh was holding a Great Gatsby for New Year I was super excited to re-wear my flapper girl look from my Hen Party. I've been looking for an event to get out my beautiful beaded dress. Unfortunately, I had packed my dress in a "special place" in preparation and when the night came round I couldn't find it anywhere. (It's still missing by the way, if you see it please tell me I'm not mad and to come back home).

Nightmare!

Thank goodness for Super Friend, Helen, who was on hand with a spare dress she'd worn for New Year's last year. Hooray! The dress was a black fringed shift with iridescent threading to add interest and a hint of sparkle. It was really comfortable and easy to wear, and worked perfectly with the rest of my look. Phew! It's quite funny that after saying I never borrow clothes from Helen I've borrowed two dresses in the last two posts!

I had a wee go at pin curls and tucked my hair under into a faux bob but I think I should have
used a setting lotion- there was a lot of frizz! I'll definitely have another shot at the hairstyle.
I'm annoyed that I didn't get a proper photo of my nails as I was really pleased with them. I used a teal base coat and gold tape and studs for individual Art Deco designs.

The party was really fun- we had a great table booked and champagne on ice so that we could enjoy Hogmanay in style. I didn't visit the casino but we did a lot of dancing to the big band and drank some prohibition inspired cocktails. Most people had made a real effort to dress in Great Gatsby outfits and everyone looked fantastic.

Here's to another year!
