Vogue cover circa 1920’s, image courtesy of Conde Nast

This image from an early Vogue cover was always one of my favorites. I think I was born in the wrong era for sure and the 20’s was one of the most decadent as far as fashion (and all of the jewelry!) goes. Even jewelry I wear every day comes from that period.

Speaking of this decade of great taste, I just found out—maybe I’m the last to know—that the Baz Luhrmann highly anticipated (3D!!) version of ‘The Great Gatsby’ will no longer be released for the holidays this year. With styles coming out this season inspired by the era, it’s kind of a let down that we have to wait until possibly the summer of 2013.

On the bright side, we can continue to rock those cute beaded drop-waist flapper style dresses and opulent jewels for another season or two!
