This weekend kicked off the 10th anniversary of the Jazz Age Lawn Party (JALP) hosted on Governor's Island in NYC. The annual 20's themed summer event features live jazz orchestra music that attracts folks looking to cut a rug on the dance floor but their Kidland carnival also makes it fun for junior gents and flapperettes. Plus the kids under 12 get in for free! So if you're looking for a period-appropriate get up for your little guy, JBH has got you covered.

Growing up in a colorful Caribbean family as a first-generation American gave me an appreciation for different cultures. I gravitate towards things that are eclectic, ethnic, vintage, colorful, and have multiple influences. My training in theatrical costume design satiated my obsession of different time periods and places and gave me a creative outlet through millinery and costume construction. I love hat making because hats are nostalgic yet timeless.
