Gatsby Darling

Recently I attended my friends 1920s Gatsby themed party, which was A LOT of fun! 
The drinks flowed, the playlist was a perfect mix of contemporary, jazz and music from the Gatsby sound track.. I felt like I had been transported back in time!
I wore a dress which was Oasis but I purchased on eBay for £15. It was more of an Art Deco inspired choice, rather than go for traditional flapper, so I wasn't drowning in a sea of tassels! Having said that everyone looked amazing and really got into the spirit of things.
The accessories are already things I pre owned, dug out of the cupboard, dusted off and given a new lease of life. The shoes were £32 surprisingly from Next - not bought especially but I loved the added sparkle!
In regards to hair and make up - I curled my hair and left it loose, only adding in a side parting and twisted piece at the front. Make up was minimal, with the all important Daisy Buchanan red lipstick!
