Fashion Book–Zelda Fitzgerald

2010 February 11

This week, I am reading The Crack-Up, a book of essays, letters, and excerpts from the notebooks of F. Scott Fitzgerald. As such, I’ve decided to do this week’s fashion book feature on Zelda Fitzgerald–not a character per se, but a legend in her own right.

Tragically, she spent the last years of her life in various sanitariums, and died in a fire at Highland Hospital in 1948, nearly 8 years after her estranged husband’s death in 1940.
