It was love at first sight with this beautiful crotchet, velvet maxi dress by Jarlo. With such a feminine design and gorgeous detailing I had to make it mine instantly. A feathered headpiece and gemstone jewellery would make this dress suit the Great Gatsby style very well. Jarlo has amazing, old school style dresses brimming with elegance similar to this which you can find here. Be aware that this dress has a slightly big make, as a size 8 as I'm wearing here was still quite loose on me.
I kept the look really minimalistic with stud pearl earrings and my hair kept sideswept and long although you could style this dress a variety of ways - red lipstick, slick bun and gem-stone earrings or glamourous hollywood finger waves and large pearl studs with rings and bracelets galore. A random piece of advice: don't eat maccas right before you wear a dress like this hahaha.

I'm currently posting from Kolkata, India where I am having a bundle of fun with my family - eating and shopping lots - but also with mozzie bites for daaays. Doesn't help when you're allergic to them -_-
Flying to Mumbai tomorrow for some interesting work! Hope you're all doing okay in the heat down in Sydney and nonethless doing okay in all other parts of the world ;)
