So the day I have been waiting for since the absent promise of it's arrival last Christmas, is finally here! I spent last night excitedly prepping my outfit for tonight, which I have had tickets booked for for weeks, in order to secure the finest seats to watch this year's undoubtedly, most spectacular creation; The Great Gatsby. I have been extremely good and not gone out shopping for something new, because, let's face it...that probably is a tad extreme! So I spent a good hour or so trawling through my wardrobe(s!) in order to find something suitable to wear that was not too 'Wintery' - which, may I add, was actually quite a difficult task, as most of my opulent, embellished items  strictly belong in Winter territory. 
This gave me the urge to see what was out and about on the internet destination of the high-street, to create a little inspirational Twenties style moodboard for you all! I was quite disappointed with the sheer lack of 1920's galore taking over many a homepage, and realised that unfortunately the shops were bursting to the brims with sequins, feathers, beading and fringing when the initial release date was exposed - something has not gone quite right here! However, I found that Miss Selfridge's website definitely came up trumps for the glamorous, Twenties style with their new 'Prom Night' collection, which has some really beautiful pieces that depict a bit of old school glamour but with a fresh, Spring/ Summer take on the theme. Topshop was another one which provided some good old glitz, with a few sequined lovelies here and there, so if you're looking for a little something to spice up an outfit to watch The Great Gatsby, or just fancy being a flapper girl for the day, those trusty two shopping destinations would be highly recommended!

This is the outfit I chose to wear for the evening; I didn't want to go too OTT as that's a bit full on when just dressing for a cinema outing, but I just wanted to give a little nod to the Twenties with a few subtle sequin touches, string of pearls and a slick of demure lipstick, while still keeping the Spring theme in mind...
What I'm Wearing: Pale pink sequin tunic: H&M, gold brocade jacket: Miss Selfridge, burgundy chain bag: Primark.

Has anyone else been to see it yet or planning to soon? I've just got back from watching and it is truly beautiful!
