We have a serious Baz Luhrmann thing going on around here; his 1996 Romeo and Juliet is still one of my literature-to-film adaptations, and I’m hopeful that ol’ Baz doesn’t CGI Fitzgerald beyond recognition. (In graduate school, my concentration was American and Brit Lit from the 1880s-1920s. So I feel compelled to shout that GATSBY WAS A BOOK BEFORE IT WAS A MOVIE, OR EVEN A STYLE. But you already appreciated that fact, right? That’s just one of the reasons I like you.) We want to interpret wedding style of the 1920s through the lens of the 2010s, so we’re concentrating on pieces that evoke Gatsby style without inviting you to a flapper-themed costume party. We’ll be faithful to the spirit, but not necessarily to the letter, of the 1920s, so feel free to pair your slip dress with a Tom Binns necklace. Mixing metals, materials, and eras–like this 20s-meets-60s mashup of the Jenny Packham Azalea dress (featured below)– feels fresh as a Daisy.
1 :: Elsa Art Nouveau Headpiece— check out the Etsy listing for a picture of this with a veil
2 :: Bauble Bar Crystalline Stack–$56 for the whole set
3 :: Kenneth Jay Lane Tear Deco Pendant Necklace–at 35″ long, this is the perfectly dramatic length
5 :: Lottie Rhinestone Droplet Forehead Band–we also like this turned to the side
6 :: Seychelles Everything’s Aglow Heel–loving the hammered silver colorway and the comfy heel
7 :: Jenny Packham S/S 2013 Azalea Dress–the best things about this dress is how relaxed it feels, and how long and lean it would make lots of different body types
8 :: Ruche Grace Chiffon Wedding Dress–Daisy, deconstructed
9 :: Melon Deco Strand Collar Necklace–for the summer, with a slinky charmeuse slip
10 :: Seychelles Turning Point Nude Heels–more Seychelles (what can we say? they make totally danceable heels); wear these with the aforementioned Melon Collar
11 :: BHLDN Swirling Platinum Gown–style this casually, with loose hair and low shoes
Anna says: our roundups are intended to be both inspirational and aspirational. Some objects are cheap and accessible, while others are dreamier in both price and scope. We try to curate choices from smaller, less well-known shops and larger retailers alike. We suggest you cherrypick the things that appeal to you, ignore the ones that don’t, and share them in equal measure with our already Pinterested style boards.
