The Great Gatsby

  • The Great Gatsby Inspired Look for Halloween

    The Great Gatsby may have been in theaters earlier this Summer, but we're still obsessing over all of the stunning fashion in the movie. We simply can't get all of the glitz and glam out of our heads (not to mention Leonardo DiCaprio)! Well, with Halloween here, is there a better time to show off your own glitz and glam? We didn't think so! So, we thought it would be fun to show you how you can rock this Summer's hit movie for All Hallow's Eve.

    To get the look, we paired one of our sparkly fringe dresses with a chic feather headpiece, a feather boa, and a long strand of pearls. You can also add in dress glove for an extra touch of glam (and warmth!). The dress is Hannah S. style 27696, a strapless slim sheath cocktail dress with all over sequins and a beaded fringe skirt.

    Remember to complete the look with super glitzy jewelry! We especially love Helen's Heart style JE-4601-10 Clear Silver Earrings and Helen's Heart JB-PD00339 Black Diamond Bracelet to add some bling to your outfit.

    This will definitely give you a costume even Daisy Buchanan would envy!

    Number one on our list is definitely The Great Gatsby! The Great Gatsby premiered on May 10, 2013. It's a very modern translation of the classic literature book from the Flapper Era, however, it still represents the "Classic" feel that is portrayed in the book. Definitely a must-see, especially if you love fashion! And, if after seeing the movie, you decide you want to rock that 1920s look, just check out our blog post on fashion inspiration from The Great Gatsby.

    No matter how old you are, you are never too old to see a Pixar movie! Ever since Monsters Inc. first came out, everyone has been anxiously waiting for a sequel (or in this case a prequel)! Thankfully, on June 21, 2013 Monsters University premiered. It's a great family movie and it will keep you laughing the whole way through!

    Grown Ups was a HUGE success in 2010, therefore, it's no surprise that they made a sequel to the movie! Grown Ups 2 premiered on July 12, 2013. This movie is full of laughs and great actors. I mean, how could it not be funny? Adam Sandler is in it! He is one of the funniest actors and he also produced the movie! If you're a fan of comedy I would definitely suggest seeing Grown Ups 2!

    Who isn't a fan of magic? I know I am! Now You See Me premiered on May 31, 2013 and it focuses on four magicians who pull off some pretty extreme magic tricks, like robbing a bank. This movie will definitely keep you on the edge of your seat, and it has a very unexpected ending. But, then again, when it comes to magicians you should expect the unexpected, right?

    Lastly, One Direction: This Is Us, has many many people (especially their girl fandom) looking forward to seeing what concert life is like for the boy band. Following in the footsteps of Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and other artists, the movie will be revolving around their life on tour. It should definitely be interesting and very insightful! The movie premiers on August 30, 2013 and we're definitely looking forward to it.

    What are some movies you're looking forward to seeing this summer?
