“Why, Hello Old Sport!” – Great Gatsby Flapper Dresses

“I hope she’ll be a fool — that’s the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool.” – Daisy Buchanan, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Great Gatsby Flapper Dress
So if you haven’t heard about ‘The Great Gatsby’ by now I am not sure where you’ve been! but don’t worry you can just Google it to catch up of course. Anyway I thought that I would do another Great Gatsby style related post, if you have been with me on my blogging journey from the start you’ll know that I did a post similar to this one about flapper dresses this time last year, but now more people are aware of the film and book I thought it would be good to do a bit of ground cover and go over it again!
There is something so nostalgically mystical about the 1920’s, it was a new era for everyone especially the ladies! who had come out of their Victorian shell and started to become more outgoing and independent! These ladies were fearless as it would seem, their make up was flawless and energetic and the icon of the ‘flapper girl’ came into action.
Flapper dresses were a massive hit, they were partially over the top, glitzy and extravagant. These dresses were a thing of the past until the emergence of ‘The Great Gatsby’ which revived the admiration and adoration for these loose fitting and stylish dresses.

Which Colour Nail Varnish Will You Wear This Summer?

Every lady and girl around the globe will know how hard it is to pick just one colour to paint their nails when deciding from a range of colours and styles, it can be hard and stressful to say the least! When I want to choose a nail polish to wear I spend ages eliminating the choices of colours and then spend even longer deciding whether or not I have made the right choice, sometimes it gets to the point where I put a shade on and decide it looks terrible and I should have gone for that beautiful pink rose shade instead of a dull shade of grey and I will take it all off and start again.

So this Summer with a range of new shades being released each week by high street retailers and stores, it’s going to be a tough decision but luckily I am here to help you decide with these top Summer picks!

White: White is a very versatile colour which can be wonderful as a nail varnish, it goes with all outfits and clothing choices and it can look amazing. It’s not really a usual choice when someone comes to paint their nails so this choice although different, will make a great statement and is a personal favourite of mine.

Peach: Peach is a very light and sweet hue that is perfect for Summer and will give you a warm Summer glow.

Blue: Such a vibrant colour and can come in a range of shades such as baby blue, kingfisher blue and cobalt blue. This colour is very strong and bright and will make a great addition to many Summer time outfits.

Red: Always a favourite! There is something risky but fun about wearing red nail varnish, it stands out and makes a statement and can look incredibly stylish and beautiful.

Pink: Whether it be baby pink, pastel pink, powder pink, peachy pink, dark pink…the list of shades are endless which always makes pink a great addition to any outfit!

With these colours in mind, I hope you enjoyed this article! 🙂
