I sometimes catch myself daydreaming of how life would be if I were born in another era. The roaring 20′s have always been a long time favorite of mine. Inspired by young women with bobbed hairstyles, short hemlines, jazz music, and blues dancing… the 1920s was a boisterously exciting period.

 Yesterday’s blog post I spent my first day in NY at Tiffany’s picking out jewels HERE. On my second day I was invited to the Tiffany & Co.’s “World Of Gatsby” party , and it was my one chance to be reborn a flapper girl.

The increase of freedom in the 1920′s was reflected by the airy fabrics and shorter hemlines. Women kissed their corsets goodbye and welcomed greater freedom in expression. The Drop waist  was a very common silhouette- as it shapelessly  draped  giving women maximum comfort & movement.

Costume jewelry also became very popular in the 1920s- bold colors paired with geometric shapes.

The Tiffany rings i’m wearing above have borders of sparkling round diamods in platinum with a Montana sapphire.

I had the pleasure of meeting the ever so talented Catherine Martine-  two time Oscar wining costume & production designer,  and  the amazing  Baz Luhrmann the director of The Great Gatsby ( also Moulin Rouge and Romeo & Juliet).

It was one of those nights I never wanted to end, but at least there is one more day I can continue to live my 20′s dream.  I can’t wait to unveil my final Gatsby look with you tomorrow, so please stay tuned!
