Vintage Inspired Fashion – The Great Gatsby StyleApril 22, 2013 by Unique Vintage | Flapper
Are you a fan of Mr. Fitzgerald’s critically acclaimed novel The Great Gatsby? Then, I’m sure you’re well aware that the latest film adaptation of the book comes out in just a few weeks, May 10th to be exact! Never mind the stellar cast and gripping story line. We want to talk Vintage Inspired Fashion! Get your Gatsby Glam on in head-to-toe flapper attire. Whether you’re interested in showing off your 20’s style through hair adornments, dazzling jewels, flapper dresses, or party shoes, we have the goodies you’re looking for!
If you love the flapper style, but aren’t quite ready to jump right in, a great place to start is with accessories. In the film, Carey Mulligan plays the ever so lovely Daisy Buchanan. And we will be the first to say that this Daisy lady sure knows how to accessorize! For a subtle flapper inspired hairpiece, go with our Silver and Clear Crystal Stone Hair Clip. If you’re ready for a little bit of a bolder look, go with our Custom Hand Made Ivory Mia Headband. This super classy headband screams 1920s and is a great addition to any 20s inspired look! And would you take a look at those jewels! Pair our Silver Metal Rhinestone Art Deco Bracelet with our Long Pearl Necklace with Match Earrings, and voile! It seems as if you should be dancing the Charleston!
