Gatsby With a Twist

When I first read The Great Gatsby (in anticipation of the movie), I fell in love. I'm not sure if it was the writing or the story or just the whole feeling of sadness and restlessness, but something about it stood out from other books I'd read. I was super excited for the movie, and I have to say it definitely met my expectations. It was artsy and mysterious and I left the theater totally in love with the twenties.
So when I saw this gorgeous drop waist dress for sale at a boutique while I was on vacation, I knew I had to have it. I had no idea when I'd wear it, but I knew I'd regret not getting it.
Today, the middle of the summer, just like when The Great Gatsby was set, I felt I should wear it, even if I didn't have an amazing party to go to. Unfortunately, I don't have a cool twenties bob, nor do I have that decade's style of shoes. So instead, I put on my favourite platforms and some red lipstick, spicing up the Gatsby look.

What I'm wearing:
dress - Shabby Chic boutique
shirt/jacket - H&M
shoes - Urban Outfitters
lipstick - Revlon Certainly Red
