Gatsby Style

From right to left, top to bottom: headpiece / living room / cakes / shoes / bouquet / bracelet / pillow

This past weekend I went to see Gatsby. I was SO excited, because it's one of the few books I enjoyed reading back in high school! I posted that I was going to see it on my instagram before I went, and a few ladies let me know critics aren't fans of the film. Guess what people?! Those critics are crazy! I thought the movie was excellent, enamoring, whimsical, funny, touching {and sad, yes!}, and ultimately, a fantastic watch. The amazing costumes and art deco decor, is reason enough to go see it in my opinion!

When I got home, I whipped up this inspiration board inspired by The Great Gatsby, because if I could I would have seen it again right then in the theatre. I don't normally gravitate toward this decorating style, but you can bet your bottom dollar I'd throw a party themed in all things art deco after seeing the film. I'm in the party-hosting mood!

Who else saw it? What were your thoughts?!

Happy Monday!

  13. I absolutely loved the movie! I would love to see it again. I even saw it in 3D (because it was free) and thought the way the emotion was captured in 3D was phenomenal. Such a fan!!
