If you haven’t heard, Baz Luhrman’s long-awaited and much anticipated take on The Great Gatsby premiers in just a few short weeks. Since 2013 also happens to mark the 80th Anniversary of the Repeal of Prohibition, its the perfect time for trend-setters and party go-ers everywhere to indulge in the over-the-top elegance and luxury of the Jazz Age.
Since everyone is abuzz with talk of these glamorous bygone days, I thought I’d share some of my favorite things, in case you should you find yourself invited to a fete worthy of Gatsby and the Buchanans.
When I dress up for a party with a distinct theme, I prefer to find something that has been inspired by the theme, instead of just picking up a costume. This way I know I won’t look like every other girl at the party and I may even be able to wear pieces of my outfit again, because who really needs a closet full of old Halloween costumes.
