the GREAT gatsby

So the big screen adaption of “The Great Gatsby” is shining a spotlight on The  twenties  fashions, from drop-waist dresses and head scarves to bow ties and spectator shoes, glittering jewels , bold lips, and crisp suits for the gents and fabulous head pieces abound and I’m loving all of it. .
A novel which i read at  school as part of my setwork has finally come to life…….(actually this is third time round but i missed the other 2—- so for me the first)
The twenties fashion definately does NOT require a wallet the size of Jay Gatsby’s to get the look.
There are plenty of choices if you want to dress head-to-toe or just spice up your wardrobe with a few accent pieces like a retro print head scarf, faux pearl or some bling. So if you want to recreate the style from the movie just mix and match, using items from a variety of stores…… but lets keep it simple!!!!!
