"& I hope she'll be a fool - that's the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool."

Above is one of my favourite quotes by F. Scott. Fitzgerald. Taken from the Great Gatsby which is heading to cinemas soon & I CANNOT WAIT. Jay Gatsby is one of my favourite characters & seeing as the film is coming out I thought I would share some of my 1922 "West Egg" sets I made on Polyvore.




At first I wasn't too sure of what to think when I found out that Baz Luhrman was directing (He did Moulin Rouge & Romeo & Juliet) & thought his films were always a little eclectic for example Kanye West is on the soundtrack to this new 2012 version which I was horrified with at first but I would be lying to myself if I said the trailer didn't look good... Of course Leo & the beautiful Carey steal the spotlight all the way through, theres a reason itself just to watch!

  19. The mint shoes in the last image are delightful, really ace stuff. I'm liking the quote too. I need to write more quotes down in a journal so whenever I need cheering up or a bit of inspiration I can just have a glance and feel better!

  22. This is amazing. The Great Gatsby is my favorite novel of all time, and these outfits are incredible. Sometimes I wish I could go back in time and experience every era and wear the fashion. I'm thinking this era would be my favorite.
