Dreaming of The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby style, high waisted shorts, chanel classical bag
I’m yet to see the movie, however The Great Gatsby book is amazing. The emotions, the era, the grand parties and witty F. Scott Fitzgerald creating line after line memorable phrases for Gatsby himself. I’m in love with this time period as much for its style and manners as for the liberal ways and art deco aesthetic. We took these photos in Balmoral on our way to dinner. Balmoral has a 1920 s vibe, just restyle the cars, alter the clothes and a couple of gins later – you’re there.
