Wonderful Wednesday: The Great Gatsby

As far as fashion is concerned, the ’20s was one of the sexiest decades in American history.

Everything a woman wore had a loose quality to it. As if at any moment, with the next jitterbug or Charleston shake, her clothes could slip right off.

It was a different kind of sensuality. It was about luxury. Glitz, glam and excess. Gin martinis, champagne coupes overflowing with bubbly, liquid gold.

WEALTH, my chickens. Lush, seductive wealth. It was an evil time. It was the calm before the storm and the moment before real desperation.

But just because Gatsby spent his whole life breaking the law and doing business with dangerous bedfellows just to impress one snotty rich girl into loving him, doesn’t mean you have to turn into a one-track-mind, label whore to look roaring twenties chic.

Shining Harder than a GIA Diamond

In the past few weeks I’ve received a record amount of emails and links in comment threads about one dress.

A dress so WTF it seems to have captured the attentions and captivated the minds of literally handfuls of you.

Coated Party Dress: $19.80

Yes, coated. A lot of your have asked, “Coated with what?”

And I have to answer, “Isn’t it obvious?”

Coated with swag. Coated with confidence, class and  high-shine polyester… Probably mostly high shine polyester, though. I mean, a GIA certified diamond would be jealous. A GIA, I TELL YOU! Look how she sparkles.

And this isn’t just some form of bondage picnic wear or something from Cat Woman’s casual wardrobe, oh no. Not only is this dress great for cocktail parties, you can also turn it inside out when you’re done and toss trash in it for easy clean up.

That’s called multi-tasking. And value.

Forever 21, WTF?
