this weekend the beloved encounter of desire, regret, and lots of money will come to life on the big screen and, being one of my all-time favorite books (and thats saying something because i read. a LOT), i couldnt be more excited. call me crazy, but the trailer literally gives me chills. the great gatsby has continued to inspire me since i turned the first page in high school, but never have i been able to so eloquently express my connection to it until today with the help of another all-time favorite lulus.com.
“if personality is an unbroken series of successful gestures, then there was something gorgeous about him” and i could say the same thing about this look. from the twenties inspired jewelry and the gold accented heels to the crochet dress and gem encrusted headpiece, there is something stunning about this pairing. and through this glimpse into a past full of glitz and glam, ive realized i was born in the wrong decade. hows the world doing on creating a time machine? anyone?
