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!
