Great Gatsby's Daisy Shops Mariposa by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Such a spirited and elegant character.

Daisy outfit, see what I mean?

As Daisy is in rapture about all the wonderful crafts she will be buying at Mariposa, lets take a gander at her outfit.
This dress is very twenties-esque.  Straight shift with pleated front in gauzy fabric. Sedneck flower pins and one Elaine Lewis button pin.
The dress is loose and hangs over this great straight band at the bottom that buttons up the side.

This is a twenties hat I got from Off Broadway that has amazing embroidery on straw. It's absolutely an art piece.
Detail of hat. I can see her picnicking on the mammoth front lawn with Jay in this outfit .
