          Today I am officially entering into my roaring twenties and another decade! This year I decided to have a theme to my birthday post and take it back in time to the jazz era. As known in Europe as the “Golden Age Twenties” (because of the economic boom following WWI) it too will be my golden start to many big life changing experiences! Entering the years of career establishment and more responsibilities  Excited for whats to come! New Year, New Age, so let the fun begin. In my birthday evening look this year every piece and accessory worn from head to toe is an unique vintage item as well as any props used. I thought what a perfect time to pull out the collection of vintage treasures from home and put them into use. These past couple days I’ve really been in a fantasy dream taking myself out of reality and feeling like a young 20 year old flapper girl roaming the street. Shot these photos with long time best friend/photographer JR Millama at the downtown LA Union Station. This location was the perfect atmosphere for a 1920s feel. Everything from the architectural buildings to the train station font screamed roaring twenties.I looked like a lost soul that took the train back to the jazz era. Thank you to everyone that join me on my last night of being a teen and for everyone I will join today for a new beinging.  Now for a day of more cake and good company! Cheers to being 20!
