Style Inspiration ... The Great Gatsby

On a lazy Sunday I caught the 1974 version of The Great Gatsby with Robert Redford and Mia Farrow. I hadn't seen in it years and had forgotten how amazing all of the costumes are! Daisy Buchanan dripping in jewels, her embellished dresses, and hair adornments ... all accessorized with a glass of bubbly. A remake is supposed to open this year (with Leo as Gatsby!) and I can't wait to see the ensembles they come up with.

Below are some fashionable highlights from the film ...
