The Oscar’s have come and gone, and it only makes sense to create a movie inspired look for today’s Thrift Style Thursday post (and a list of movies to watch in my free time)!
As you may have guessed from the title, I went with the 20’s theme so well portrayed in The Great Gatsby. Something about that era was always dear to my heart, maybe it’s the style, or the beauty, or the fact that it’s almost surreal, realizing how long ago everything took place… I love history, and culture, ambition and the role of women in that society. I love their outlook on life and how they couldn’t care less whether they carried their device chargers with them, because there were no goddamn devices back then. It seems like life was a lot easier, but a lot more complicated for us, people of the 21st century.
I decided on this black dress because the bottom ruffles remind me of the flapper girls’ style, the shoes have a chunky heel, just like they did in the 20’s. I am probably wearing too much bracelets making this look a tad bit costume-y. My headband is from The Annex, and the clutch is vintage.
If you were to create a movie/movie character inspired outfit who would it be?
Please check out other looks, and I hope we’ll inspire you to get out of your comfort zone and look for ideas in unusual places!
