Beaded gown, 1930's hat, jewelery: Thrifted.
Well hello everyone!
At school we recently read the novel The Great Gatsby which is based during the 1920's. So, after the junior class reads the novel we have a 'Great Gatsby' dress up day party where everyone wears 1920's costumes and we eat all sorts of delicious food at lunch!
I've been waiting for this party since my freshman year... I thrifted this dress as a freshman at one of my local thrift stores, and was originally going to wear it as my prom dress. However, because the entire dress is beaded it could not be taken in to fit me better since the dress is actually a large. So, about a year ago I decided I would wear this dress as my Gatsby dress since it looked rather 1920's inspired. I think it worked out perfectly!
I rolled my hair in foam rollers last night and slept in them to get my spirals, and I even wore fake eyelashes for today! Ah, I totally wish I could dress this glamorously everyday. What a dream that would be...
With much love, Lauren.
P.S. Tomorrow is Matt's grad party and Sunday he graduates! Yelp, I can't believe all of this is finally here... I'll make sure to take some pictures for you all!
