Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby doesn’t hit theaters until Christmas Day, but in the office, we’re already going crazy for the trailer. I watch the trailer whenever I need a little bit of inspiration, and though I’ve lost track of the number of times I’ve seen it, I still get a bit of a chill every time the famous yellow car barrels down New York City’s streets.
Though some have criticized the use of modern music in the trailer, I think Jay Z, Kanye West and Frank Ocean’s “No Church in the Wild” is the perfect song to capture the era’s hedonism. Jack White’s haunting “Love Is Blindness” closes out the trailer as a reminder that this is a beautiful story, but not a romantic one.
Above all, I’m looking forward to seeing these gorgeous costumes on the big screen. Drop waist flapper dresses have never suited me, so I’m hoping this film will herald the triumphant return of decadent hair accessories. This sparkling headpiece by Maria Zureta is appropriate for the office, right? Just say yes.

I have been a huge fan of Maria Zureta for over 3 years now, having bought my first Maria Zureta necklace in Brick Lane market in 2008. This necklace is one of absolute favourites, there is something so romantic about clocks that stand still – like a beautiful moment frozen in time to cherish forever!
