Inspirational Monday: Modern Day Gatsby

I've always loved the 1920s fashion...fringe, beading, feathers, ohmy! There was never enough embellishments in the 1920s. I remember reading The Great Gatsby in high school and falling in love with the book and the culture that was the roaring 20s. The 20s style never really left, you can constantly see hints of it in designer wear, but ever more so within these past few seasons.

The fiance and I went to go see The Great Gatsby this past Friday. Of course, I had to play with my modern day take of the 20s look. Nothing like a shaggy skirt on a Friday paired with a jean jacket to take it to modern day.

Baz Luhrmann's adaptation was what I was expecting it to be a little over the top with a little of a modern day twist to much like how Romeo and Juliet's adaptation was. Though the music choices were ummm....interesting...the fashion was dead on. The costume designer, Catherine Martin, did an amazing job bring the 1920s to life. I wish men still got dressed up everyday. *sigh*

What do you guys think of the 20s style?

  3. Love your modern twist on 1920s style Heather!
    I absolutely love 1920s fashion. Come to think of it I even have a flapper dress that I should really feature on my blog asap.
    And yes, it would be amazing if men still dressed like that.
