Great Gatsby Prom

March 12, 2014 by Unique Vintage | Prom, Vintage Inspired

There’s no denying how much we adore The Great Gatsby. What’s not to love? Fabulous parties, beautiful dresses, and of course Leonardo DiCaprio. Lucky for us,  prom this season, we were inspired to capture the glitz and glamour of Gatsby and the 1920s with some of our favorite flapper dresses and art deco-inspired accessories. Are you ready to party like Gatsby this prom?

Intricately beaded with diminutive flowers, a sheer skirt, and plenty of Gatsby-era charm, Mignon’s Ice Blue Mermaid Gown is perfect for flaunting your curves while dancing away the night. For added 1920s flair, style with the Gunite Long Pearl Necklace, the Silver Glitter Barrel Clutch, and the Black Caged Peep Toe Heels. Of course no flapper can be seen without a perfect red cupid’s bow. Paint your pout with our very favorite cherry red lipstick by Besame and you’ll look like you stepped straight out of the novel.
