|A Tail| of a modern day Gatsby

22 May, 2013

I had this little project brewing in my head for a few months and actually was the original theme Karla and I's collaboration (see what we did here) but ended up not working out at the time but I still wanted to do it. My plan was to have it out before the remake of one of my ultimate favorite books-turned-movies The Great Gatsby, I was obsessed since the day I read the book back in grade school. Not only was the story so divine but it depicted a romance during my ultimate favorite era, the 1920s. I live and breath for that time in history, mostly because well the way women and men would dress was decadent and extravagant. When I saw that The Great Gatsby was going to be remade, I instantly thought of this post and viola- here it is. I had a different location I wanted to shoot in but time and energy where not on my side, so I decided to make the best of it and shoot around my neighborhood.

I am getting back in the groove of posting outfits, I know it's been lacking but I got you people, you will be getting a few more before I cross the pond over to Germany.
