The Great Gatsby
My roommate and I threw a Great Gatsby-themed bash for my birthday this year. The Great Gatsby is one of my favorite novels, and I adore the '20s in general, especially for the fabulous fashion. From Midnight in Paris to the Artist to Boardwalk Empire to Baz Luhrmann's forthcoming cinematic adaptation of the novel, there's no shortage of sartorial inspiration out there!
The soiree was a smashing success, complete with retro cocktails, the 1974 film to set the mood, Gershwin tunes galore, a fun photobooth and plenty of shimmying.
Even Igby dressed up for the occasion. Doesn't he look dapper?
