Channeling: The Great Gatsby

Ever since I saw the first image of Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan my inner literature heart  was pushed through into the forefront. I've only read "The Great Gatsby" once, in high school, but I always remember being deeply interested in the story and how beautifully Mr. Fitzgerald writes. So I knew that the movie would have two of my favorite things, grand 20s fashion and a tragic romance. Who could resist?! I've always told myself that in another life I lived in this era, mostly because I could see myself falling in love and having my heart broken in such a grandeur way.

I've found a few of my favorite pieces inspired by the novel and the new Baz Lurhmann production! From what I've seen in previews and have seen with the sketches from Prada, the fashion in this movie will not disappoint!

Have any of you seen the movie yet? If so, what did you think? Did it live up to expectations? I'm hoping to see it this Friday, so don't spoil me too much!
