OOTD: Great Gatsby

In honor of the release of the new Great Gatsby movie, I decided to put together an outfit inspired by the roaring 20s. I've always had a love for the 20s and was even a flapper for halloween a couple years ago. I love the sophisticated style the women embodied during the 20s and 30s, which allowed them to be modest yet sexy at the same time.  I've never been the type of woman to show off a lot of skin and all that I've got, yet I still want to be considered sexy. I don't typically show off my arms (they're a big insecurity of mine) so this outfit was kind of a big deal for me. I even decided to wear a short-sleeve shrug with the dress, but realized it looked much better and more Gatsby without it so I took a leap of faith and removed it!
