Headband / Shoes / Dress
Last year I remember reading the Great Gatsby for school, and I thought the book was fantastic. It was a great look at the 1920’s. From how the economy was to the difference between new money and old money as well as a bit about the lower class. Scott Fitzgerald offers a look from his perspective with an amazing story. After reading the book the class had a few days to watch the movie (of course everyone loves these days) and then I fell in love with the 1920’s fashion. I loved the dresses, shoes and of course the jewelry. That’s why I was so excited when I found out that there would be a new version of The Great Gatsby coming out. Basically I forced my boyfriend to agree to take me, but I don’t think it was too much of a forced thing because the previews look fantastic.
- Vintage Flapper Dress – I did a post about a 1920’s tribal dress but this is a little different than a flapper dress, although they are both influenced by the same type of women from the era. A flapper dress is supposed to have fringe so that when a girl dances it gets all flippy. Sequins and feathers are of course a plus, as is anything else that would draw attention.
- Nude Peeptoe, Claudia – $45 This isn’t exactly the kind of shoe style that was available in the 1920’s but a more modern version of it. The heel is a little higher and the toe isn’t as square shaped. The nude color though is perfect added extra length to the leg. If you want a more “classic” shoe you can look at my hot office outfit post.
- Tiffany & Co Headband – I love Tiffany and Company. I’ve done a Tiffany’s Haul as well as a Tiffany’s Wishlist so of course I was excited to see that Tiffany’s did a lot of the jewelry for the new Great Gatsby Movie because everything they make is fantastic. I’m even thinking about making a new wish list featuring their Jazz Age Collection.
