a little party never killed anyone

My close friend is a total fashionista and trend-setter who lives in San Francisco. Since we have the same name, our college group of friends always referred to her as "big Jess". I'm sure she hates that especially since she is petite by most people's standards. But I'm miniature. So she got the name by default. 

She is beautiful, a ton of fun and always loves a good party. So I shouldn't have been surprised when I received her wedding invitation in the mail last week. It is the cutest wedding theme ever.

the bride to be

Great Gatsby Garden Party
"Seersuckers, bow ties, and fascinators galore will set the stage for a great evening under the stars."

Super fun, right?
Well, I can't wait.

I'm on the prowl for a fabulous 1920's era, Gatsby-inspired outfit for the wedding. I still have a few months to try to convince A that he'd look great in a bow tie. But something tells me...it ain't gonna happen. So I'll just stick with my attire for now. 

Here are some pretty mood boards that will be guiding my shopping trips.


I'm sure the movie has some great outfit ideas as well. But I can't bring myself to watch it until I finish re-reading the book. Hope y'all are having a great weekend.

If you have any recommendations on stores that I should check for my outfit, please let me know.
