There has been a noticeable shift in fashion and trends with the release (and pending release in Australia) of The Great Gatsby. Art-deco inspired gowns and stationary, a hark back to glamour and opulence, with embellished jewellery and strings of pearls. We’ve loved seeing it all roll in, and, of course, drooling over the star’s fashion on the red carpet! I myselft don’t have the hips for the 20’s style (girls with curves will understand my morbid fear of the drop-waist), however it’s a style that screams sophistication and gives a wonderful rebellious nod to gender ambiguity in the cut.
This week, we’ve launched a new series on Polka Dot Groom (welcome Mr Herringbone and his culinary skills!), and we’ve shared some fabulous weddings, advice and DIYs. If you missed anything, or just want a refresh – here’s the weekly roundup of our specialty blogs!
