setting the mood...












this one goes out to all the darling attendees of ed and my wedding this may. i collected some favorite scene shots from the great gatsby and from *ahem* a river runs through it. both films capture the spirit of the roaring 20s, and hit the nail on the head for costume inspiration. who knew that when i planned this wedding that we were heading for a new "great" depression. i know some of my friends are worrying that they have to run out and by a fringed, tiered, period frock...but i think this can be translated quite well beyond the box.

ebay, naturally, is my favorite.

vintage stores (online or otherwise)

or...

urban outfitters and department stores if you feel like playing it safe.
