This summer is all about The Great Gatsby – the movie, the themed parties, the weddings, and of course roaring 20’s-style clothing. I am a huge fan of the time period where feather fascinators, gorgeous fringe and art deco accessories were the norm!
I recently attended a Gatsby-inspired fundraiser in Danvers and wore THE MOST AMAZING floor-length-gown. I loved watching everyone strut around in their prohibition-era-attire. It got me thinking “how can I bring this look into my normal day without looking overdone?” The answer came in the form of a pleated polka dot skirt from Forever XXI, black halter top from White House | Black Market, ivory lace headband from Icing, a string of pearls, and the perfect cocktail ring from Macy’s, not to mention my ever-present MAC Red lipstick from Nordstrom! Not a surprise, this is all from Northshore Mall!
What is the secret to pulling together a fabulous Gatsby look for your day-time-plans?
1. Put simple accessories together – choose accessories that make you look polished with little effort.
2. Cat eyeliner and red lips are a must.
3. Oxford flats are the perfect addition to channel your day-time flapper.
4. A vintage crystal broach can dress up any handbag – a little sparkle = a lot of glam.
Have a blast with vintage-styling this summer!
Yours in style & flattery,
