Gatsby

How I imagine Jordan Baker

How I imagine Jordan Baker

The Great Gatsby has long been one of my favourite books. Yes, I was that kid in high school who actually didn’t hate it. One thing that really stood out for me was the character of Jordan Baker. Jordan was the epitome of a flapper girl – independent, self-possessed, and liberated. She represented the social freedom and rebellion of the jazz age that gave rise to the new women.

Naturally, for a Halloween party at a friends on Saturday, I decided to pay homage to one of my favourite characters. I found this fringe dress at a vintage shop in LA that I absolutely adore. My string of pearls used to belong to my Nonna T and are slightly out of era from the 30s or 40s.

Bright Young Things

I love Halloween.

On Friday, I attended a Halloween party at the ROM with some friends I met at TIFF. Costumes were encouraged, which was perfect because I love dressing up. I bought my handcrafted Venetian mask in Venice last October and knew this would be an appropriate event to wear it to along with a white sequin dress. Admittedly, I was unsure what this masquerade inspired look was until someone asked me if I was Daisy Buchanan from the Great Gatsby. A bit of an epiphany occurred and I decided I was a Gatsby-era bright young thing attending a masquerade ball! The ingenuity of strangers will never cease to amaze me.

What are you dressing up as for Halloween?
