Since there has been such an outpouring of delight with our Great Gatsby Roaring 20's inspired Halloween costumes, we are delighted to bring you some fresh roaring 20s party dresses which would be perfect for an elegant Gatsby inspired New Year's Eve Party. All of these dresses are reasonably priced. In fact the Anna-Kaci flapper dresses are all priced well under $50.00, the only rub being that Anna-Kaci dresses are pretty much designed for small gals. So if you are average or plus sized be sure to check out Modcloth – they offer a wide range of sizes from extra small to 4x. Continue Reading →
Wear Outfits, Not Costumes
Just today we received an email from Shopstyle announcing that outfits rather than costumes are 2015's hottest Halloween trend. We wanted to scream – told you so! Every Halloween we feature real life clothes that can be dressed up for Halloween and then worn again throughout the year.
For example a must own little black dress like the one featured below, and available in sizes xs – 4x, can be paired with black cat bags, headbands, shoes, jewelry and cat face paint. And then after Halloween you can continue to wear the dress and all the accessories, just not all together.
Full of glitz, glamour, ornate details, and a true style all its own – what girl wouldn't want “The Great Gatsby” look? Whether you are planning a casual Gatsby themed garden party, fabulous, glamorous cocktail evening, or even attending a Great Gatsby costume viewing party, there are plenty of ways to add a flapper-esque flair to any look with the 1920s fashion inspired dresses and accessories over at ModCloth.
- Details, details, details. Epaulets, pearls, rhinestones, and sequins were highly used during this time period to add glitz to an evening outfit.
- Slender silhouettes. While you could still see a full skirt, long hemline, and high neck, the robe de style dress featuring a drop waist and straight cut was the most popular style.
- Haute headpieces. To top off the entire look, add a whimsical & decadent headpiece from ModCloth. You can even DIY a fabulous headband with ribbon, feathers, and gemstones!

We have put together an inspiration board of our favorite Great Gatsby|Art Deco | Roaring 20s Party Invitations. With the release of The Great Gatsby movie on May 10th we think it would be so much fun to begin your summer weekend entertaining with a Great Gatsby costume party. It would certainly set the mood for the rest of the summer.
The Great Gatsby Movie Viewing & Costume Party
The Great Gatsby Movie Viewing & Costume Party is our of our all time favorite themes! We absolutely love Great Gatsby themed Costume Parties. Not surprisingly, costumes are required. I always get flack from my husband when I suggest he simply wear a suit and hat. After much conjoling, I finally persuade him to don a dapper classic tuxedo like the one worn by Leonardo DiCaprio in the poster. Done!
An even harder problem is what should I wear? So many options but I particularly love the very reasonably priced Anna-Kaci flapper dresses on Amazon. To complete the outfits order a coordinating boa, Long Satin Gloves, a Costume Cigarette Holder, a flapper wig or headband or hat, and flapper beads / pearls.
