Fashion Book: The Great Gatsby
I know it’s cliche, but The Great Gatsby remains one of my favorite books. It was only a matter of time before I committed a Fashion Book post to it. The book calls to mind the excess of the Jazz Age more than any other cultural icon–sequins dresses, hats, cigarette holders, and bob haircuts. Maybe next week I’ll do a post for Daisy Buchanan, the ultimate dream girl, but this week, I wanted to do something slightly more unexpected.
Jordan Baker is Daisy’s friend, and arguably, the more interesting of the two women. She’s an avid golfer, carries herself with confidence, and doesn’t take crap from anyone. In my mind, Jordan would definitely be that rare woman who can carry off a white suit and sneakers, and look sexy while doing it.
What do you think of Gatsby? Worth the hype?
