Inspiration: Great Gatsby 25th Birthday


Saturday is my 25th birthday (yikes!) and I'm going all out and hosting a Great Gatsby attire party in honor of my favorite book!


These photos of Diane Kruger and Drew Barrymore (during the Grey Gardens era) have been the perfect inspiration for my outfit. I love how glam they look!


I got my costume at a wonderful vintage store called Shareen Vintage in Downtown L.A. The girls there are beyond helpful and they have such great finds for great prices.


Hair and makeup inspiration for the night are of my favorite beauties Diane Kruger and Sienna Miller... thinking of trying a fun lip color for a change with some retro curls and pearls!

Guide To Style Tip: When looking for inspiration photos of hair and makeup it is always helpful to find photos of someone with your similar coloring. It makes it much easier to imagine how the look or trend will play out on you!


Can't wait to share pictures with you all from the party! I'm having Sweet and Saucy bakery (the place that made my wedding cake) make my birthday cake to match my dress and I can't wait to see it...
