We're just joining here, but we are very much vintage lifestyle enthusiasts. So much so in fact that we do a monthly vintage dance party called Swing House. We wanted to give you a heads-up on the one coming up this Saturday (next two are 6/21 and 7/26), and on another vintage event in NYC, a 1920s picnic on Governor's Island June 7-8. We'll include our invite below, and info on the picnic can be found at dreamlandorchestra.com (Michael Arenella is the organizer). Hope to see you there! (BTW, you may want to check out our past party pics for some vintage dress inspiration)
