The Great Gatsby

The fabulous style and grace of the '20s
The draping silhouette of the dresses was positively heavenly
Wondering what a modern-day Daisy Buchanan might look like...

I just recently finished re-reading one of my favorite books, The Great Gatsby. Something about a 1920s New York City summer is completely mesmerizing and enchanting. It's got me fantasizing about everything contemporary and art deco, and a romantic era long since passed. The novel oozes with depictions of Gatsby's luxurious lifestyle, and the tragedies spurred by one of the most amazing love stories ever written. A fine literary masterpiece, it makes me want to re-read my favorite novel, Gone With The Wind. Look out for a Scarlett-themed post soon...
