I can’t help but be dazzled by Luhrman’s previous films and while many think it’s a big risk to take on this story, I’m probably most excited about the sets, costumes and music, though of course, I do have high hopes for the adaptation itself.
So in honor of the The Great Gatsby, here’s some Roaring 20s inspiration for your weekend:
Classic Cloche, $190.
And for the Gents, find your dapper dandies at Brooks Brothers:
Perhaps a libation or two? I’ll take a Gibson:
Enjoy the spectacle and let me know what you think if you see the movie!
Happy Friday, all…
Being the Downton Abbey, and general period piece, fan that I am, of course I was planning to watch Masterpiece Classic’s latest series, Mr. Selfridge. It didn’t hurt that it was about shopping, either. Oh, and it stars Jeremy Piven. I like him.
I caught the series premiere last night (online) since we were on the road on Easter Sunday.
The series shows promise and is worth a watch for you fellow buffs, but they certainly crammed a lot of information into two hours. Hopefully as the series unfolds, they’ll dive more into each character they introduced and not spread the story so thin. The costumes are great but I can only imagine the pain of the hair prep and weight of the hats the ladies wore.
But of course, the hats inspire a few Kentucky Derby looks. Stay tuned for inspiration!
p.s. Call the Midwife is back on, too!
I could have sworn I’d seen “White Christmas” at some point over the years, but I caught it last weekend on TV and nothing looked familiar besides the grand finale musical number. Either way, I’m glad I stumbled upon it again.
With all that’s going on in the world, this song serves as a good reminder of how good so many of us have it. So here’s to counting blessings and remembering to do good for others during the holidays (and always).
Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas!
