I didn't get to the theater this weekend to see Great Gatsby but it's happening this week for sure which got me to thinking how much fun it would be to get a group together to see the show and dress the part. You could either go full-on flapper style or something very wearable and current. Ralph Lauren's Spring 2012 Ready-to-Wear show was all about this look and I love it. I put a Great Gatsby inspired outfit together last summer for a Friday's Fancies with {av} and thought it might be fun to try again. I actually have versions of pieces from both of these outfits in my closet - each of which were purchased between eight and ten years ago which proves the point about buying classic pieces and taking care of them.

And if you enjoy all things 1920 you should check out the pinterest board of blogger / interior designer Lynda Quintero-Davids called 'deco details' - she's got some great finds.

What about you - have you seen the movie?
