Loving Gatsby - again

The mid 1970s found us re-loving Gatsby through Redford and Farrow in the latest film version. Women were wed wearing floppy hats instead of veils and the men sported white trousers, shoes, and colorful jackets as serious fashion. 2013 took the pink suit to DiCaprio and again the ladies look for their fashions swinging and their men driving Model As. My BDFF Penne from GA created Gatsby for my Dollmore Eve and she is smashing from her cloche -
to the beading on her dress
and every other little detail.
Had to display Eve with more time-related items: a craftsman house and a book featuring William Morris textiles. Thank you, Penne, for dressing Eve! PS I love the seamed stockings!
