I have been waiting patiently for today for a long, long time. What is today you ask? Nothing short of opening day for the new "Great Gatsby" movie, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Joel Edgerton, Carey Mulligan, and Isla Fisher. While I haven't seen it yet, this film promises to be as lavish as the decade and time period it is based on. The sets and costuming look opulent and stunning, and even the music and cinematography look epic.
Being a boutique owner and fashion obsessed, I admit I am just as excited for the costumes and fashion as I am the actual movie plot. The jewels, feathers, beading, etc promise to be truly breathtaking. I have always loved this time period of fashion history, and in fact last year Flourish hosted a decade themed fashion show, which opened with a nod to the 20's fashion and flapper era. Here are some photos from that show.
But of course that was last year, and all those adorable dresses and necklaces, etc are all sold and happily in our customers' closets...so I had to make sure we had a few 20's inspired dresses ready and waiting THIS SEASON too! Here are some looks from the actual Gatsby movie and how you can snag a similarly inspired Flourish Boutique dress to wear to a dinner/movie date when going to see the Great Gatsby this weekend!
Check out the stunning feathers in this look from the movie:

And, here is our stunning curvy model, Andrea, wearing a modern headband across the forehead to get a vintage inspired look. Great idea for when going to the movie, but still wanting to wear casual clothes!
