Current Obsession: The Great Gatsby

Hey Everyone!

Its been a while hasn't it? My bad- I'm so super busy with school at the mo- my first exam is in 3 weeks (ermygawd!). 

Remember in a Sunday Post a while ago I mentioned my huge excitement for The Great Gatsby film? Well my obsession has boiled over into life-consuming so I thought I'd share a little of my anticipation for the movie with you. 
I think its going to be one of my favourite films ever. It has all the ingredients: extravagance, amazing fashion and an incredible soundtrack. Oh and did I mention Leonardo DiCaprio? 
This is the sample soundtrack. I particularly love 'Love Is Blindness', 'Young and Beautiful' and 'Over The Love' (cannot stop listening to that!) What's your favourite? I love how Jay Z (executive producer!) has taken contemporary songs and adapted them to the Jazz Age. Who knew Crazy In Love would be so amazing 1920s style?

Finally, being typical 'me', I've created a board of Pinterest: 1920s/ Gatsby inspired. Here are a few of my favourite pins.

Can I just be a flapper already? & don't you think Carey Mulligan is so cute and doll-like?

So that just about rounds up my Gatsby gushing. Please let me know how excited you are for (what I think will be) the movie of the summer.
