TICKET TO THE TWENTIES 2014

This year’s Ticket to the Twenties, the 20s festival at the Homestead Museum, was as always a delight for the vintage enthusiast.  The weather proved to be so much cooler than last year.  We were actually able to enjoy our picnic with friends rather than drip in our clothes. At the festival you can do everything.  Tour the homes, watch silent films, hear talks, learn to play the ukulele or mahjong, or listen and dance to the live bands.  We chose to picnic, listen to music, and watch the fashion show.

The Art Deco Society of Los Angeles Fashion Show

The Sunday show, put on by the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles, was once again a delight. Filled with lovely dresses I would love to be able to fit in to, I was in heaven.  I am always fascinated with the variety and styles.  In popular culture, the twenties are so campy with fringe, boas and headbands.  Real twenties fashion is so varied and far more beautiful than you will find among many.

Ticket to the Twenties Picnic

Our picnic with friends was terrific and getting to visit with those we know is one of the highlights of the event.  I made a decadent picnic, which I was so happy to share with dear friends.

This year I wore a vintage 20s homemade dress.  It took lace and elements from an Edwardian dress back in the day and upcycled it into a 20s/30s transitional dress.  Rather clever, that crafty sewer was.

The Spanish style Casa Nueva, one of the homes on the estate, is lovely and my favorite on site.

Overall the day is a highlight of my year and something I always look forward to.  I feel I’ve been so many years, you’d think I’d get bored.  Never!
