there are only the pursued, the pursuing, the busy and the tired.

Is anyone else excited for the new movie version of The Great Gatsby? It is set to hit theaters this week and I can't wait to see it. The compelling characters, the drama, and of course, the 1920s themed costumes! What could be better?

Everywhere I look, I'm getting inspired by the luxurious 20s fashion and makeup. From movie stills to the red carpet, I can't get enough. What am I loving the most? Nina Dobrev's Gatsby red carpet dress and Carey Mulligan's stunning hair accessories. (I feel like I need a pearl necklace and head scarf already!) Retro glamour is making waves right now - and it is impossible to ignore.

So, only one question remains: are you ready for The Great Gatsby?


"Her face was sad and lovely with bright things in it, 
bright eyes and a bright passionate mouth, but there was 
an excitement in her voice that men who had 
cared for her found difficult to forget."


“And I like large parties. They’re so intimate. At small parties there isn’t any privacy.”  


“His heart beat faster and faster as Daisy’s white face came up to his own. 
He knew that when he kissed this girl, and forever wed his 
 unutterable visions to her perishable breath, his mind would 
never romp again like the mind of God."
 

“and for a moment I thought I loved her. But I am slow thinking and 
full of interior rules that act as brakes on my desires...” 


Only a few more days until the movie is finally released. Here is hoping that the film lives up to my wildly unrealistic expectations. If not...well, there is always the fashion. 

Are you excited for The Great Gatsby? What do you love the most about 1920s style?

  37. I have not seen it yet, butI have been anxiously anticipating it since last year!
    I love the 1920's and the chic retro eras. People were just classier and so much more glamorous.
    I adore all that is old hollywood and couldn't agree with you more.
    I love the head pieces and the sex appeal that the gowns had without being overly revealing.
    Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my blog, dear. It hit close to home. <3

    Best,
