Gatsby? What Gatsby? – Chi Omega Semi ’15

Last weekend my sorority held our annual semi-formal and the theme was modeled after one of my all-time favorite books and movies…

The Great Gatsby


What I Wore

AKIRA Black Label Sequin Dress (sold out, but here are some similar options 1 & 2)  –  Kendra Scott Phara Necklace,  Sophee Earrings  –  Bite VIB Rouge Lipstick  –  BCBG Paris Nude Heels

I got to borrow this gorgeous AKIRA Black Label dress from a friend, so I went all out with my outfit for the evening. I added a bold red lip and a collection of curls, created with my favorite curling wand and hairspray, to complete the look. I must say, the final product was definitely a bit different than the style that I typically go for, but I absolutely loved how the whole look ended up coming together!


 One of my best friends, Connor, came as my date for the evening.

  • This looks like such a fun event! I can’t wait to read the Great Gatsby, it’s the next book we’re reading in my Lit class!


    • Thank you so much, it was a lot of fun! Oh my gosh, I hope you absolutely love it! Great Gatsby is such a well done book. I first read it during my sophomore year of high school and I’ve loved it ever since!
