"It's weird, there are only black and white in this room, and yet everything's so…so colorful."
-J Harvey Vanderbilt
Black and White Ball 1966
When I got word from the lovely Rebes & Ash that they would be hosting yet another New Years Eve party in their dreamy Chicago apartment, I couldn't imagine anything as spectacular as Great Gatsby NYE 2013, because after all, in the words of the great
F. Scott Fitzgerald, "You can't repeat the past." But if anyone is capable of re-creating a party as classy and epic as Truman Capote's Black and White Ball of 1966, these girls are. What better way to welcome the new year than with friends you love and live life with near and far, and we did just that in the form of The Modern yet Classic Black and White NYE 2014.
With any fabulous party comes a photo booth to capture the faces of friends, old and new, so to make sure to keep the memory of Black and White 2014, I put together a little video.
And a few other party pics…
