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.
