The 1930s dress I made to wear with the marcasite brooches my husband gifted me with needed wearing. What is the point of having a dress and jewels with no place to wear them? Opportunity presented itself and I jumped at the occasion to wear them. An annual tradition, the dinner dance co-sponsored by the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles and the private ladies club, The Ebell of Los Angeles is a treat of the Los Angeles vintage season. The event paid tribute to the film Casablanca and the 1940s.
Wondering what happened at this magical evening? Fezs and ’40s gowns abounded. Dancing lasted till late in the evening to Dean Mora’s orchestra. A magician amazed guests. Dance performances enchanted. Tours and costume displays showcased The Ebell in all its splendor. The Ebell, known as the last location that Amelia Earhart spoke before she disappeared, is a gorgeous venue that I have profiled before. Built in 1927, the Ebell hosts many events for its members. As an event attendee it is such a treat to not only have the ability to dress up, but do so in a space that immerses you in the time period.
…turned in to an ogling session. (Silly Lily and Brian!)
