All That Jazz




Marc Jacobs Dress, Kate Spade Pumps

     Ever since I saw Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby, I've been eager to don a 1920s inspired look. My school's homecoming dance this past weekend was the perfect opportunity.
     To transform into a modern flapper, I paired my tiered ruffled dress with black patent leather pumps. I coiffed my hair into a relaxed version of the finger wave, which was highly popular in the era. 
     I totally felt like a fierce female from the twenties. I even began to empathize with them; they partied at speakeasies to take a break from fighting for their rights and I danced at homecoming to escape the toils of homework and college applications!
