Holiday Gatsby Style


I'm going to share a little secret with you. I didn't watch The Great Gatsby up until recently and it wasn't a re-run at the theater or even on a nice flat screen tv. It was a freebie on an airplane. Shameful, I know. But better late than never!

Being a huge fan of Baz Luhrman, it's a wonder it took me so long to soak in the glitz and glamour of the roaring 20's but boy was this movie stunning or what?! I mean, seriously. There's just so much visual inspiration to pull from here and my heart has been stuck with the idea since.


With my birthday coming up this weekend (December 14th! Woo!), I knew I wanted to have a Gatsby-themed party. (If you follow my 2nd channel From Jen on Youtube you'll get to catch a glimpse of during Vlogmas since I'm vlogging everyday until Christmas. Lots of no-makeup Jen and onesies over there.) so I wanted to share a bit of fashion eye-candy that I've been getting googly-eyed over.

Whether you are attending a 20's themed fete or just want to look extra glamorous for a holiday party, here are some gorgeous (and modern) dresses and accessories to consider:





Readers, do you have a particular style in mind for the holidays? What do you think of 20's style? I'd love to hear what you think in the comments!

  1. I love Gatsby and I think Baz Luhrman did his world of glitz and glamour some serious justice! Can't wait to see your party on Vlogmas!

  4. Would you do an Evanescence "Call me when you're sober" makeup tutorial? I think it would be a great holiday look. The only thing is I am a tan Korean. Not sure how to make it to work. You are awesome! I love your videos. Best on YT!

  6. Oddly enough, the same thing happened for me! I ended up watching The Great Gatsby on a flight as well, long after the release of the movie.

    Although I didn't care much for the story, I must say the visuals were absolutely stunning. Your idea of throwing a 20s theme party is really neat. I totally see it being a blast and loooove the head pieces you posted.

  7. I still haven't seen this movie yet >.< but I love the 20s flapper/speakeasy feeling style. It just looks so fun and makes you want to dance (especially in those fringe dresses!) I love the whole 'Old Hollywood' look for the holidays especially in a nice red dress with my long black hair in those big Marcel waves =)

  8. ;__; I haven't seen The Great Gatsby yet either >___>;;;; I love the style and fashion inspiration in the 20s era though, very glamorous and fun! My personal favorite for all seasons, but especially the holidays is the 50s. I love that vintage A-line silhouette in the dresses and the cute heels, and the soft romantic glamour curls, and of course your holiday favorite, the red lip! Happy Birthday Jen, it definitely looked spectacular! <3
