The Great Gatsby - Party Like a Flapper

Today The Great Gatsby is launching in cinemas nationwide and I have no doubt this film is going to be an amazing homage to the 1920s. However, it's not only the revival of the life of Gatsby that makes us want to attend "flapper parties" whenever possible. The era has been very popular in general for the last couple of years, probably because of the fantastic glitz and glamour that comes with it (and of which we all are a little short currently). A while back I went to a Prohibition Party in Bloomsbury (pre drinks at 20s inspired Milk & Honey bar) with cocktails in tea cups, pretend gambling, awesome music and a very strict dress code. I loved it!! To celebrate the launch of The Great Gatsby I have put together 4 different flapper party ensembles for you to be prepared in case the roaring twenties ever return to your town.
