Give Me Gatsby



  I'm seeing this everywhere- the roaring twenties trend. It's filling up the blogosphere, ASOS, and it's even earnt a place in this month's edition of VOGUE. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald (and it's one of my most favourite books ever) oozes glamour. From flapper dresses to beaded gowns, this, in my opinion, is and was THE era to be from. 
  This look is a luxurious whirlwind combination of incandescent sequins, iridescent beads, daring plunging deep V necklines and a contrast of gentle pastels with bolder block colours and sharp shapes. Regardless of the detailing, all have a sort of flow. They fall smoothly around the body, to create ultimate femininity. Made in Chelsea, love it or hate it, pulled off a Gatsby themed soiree to near perfection in the season just past, so have a Google of that to see more amazing 20's fashion.


 VOGUE indulges us to photos from the Ralph Lauren runway... 









  I haven't created one of my own as of yet, but this is a really good example I found on FashionFinder on ASOS (Deffs have a look if you haven't already! It's suuuuch an awesome site!)

  I'm also incredibly excited that the remake of the film version is to be released this year! EEE! So not only are there going to be the most amazing clothes, it's a film of the most amazing book, and features some pretty awesome cast members- Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Isla Fisher and Tobey Maguire. OMGG I'M SO EXCITED! 
  Let me know your thoughts on the flapper fashions. Could you pull it off?

  5. Can't wait for the film to come out... been holding out for too long! I've always been a 20's fan... those girls knew how to style sequins! Love your style collage - similar to what I would have chosen!
