“I'm not sentimental--I'm as romantic as you are. The idea, you know, is that the sentimental person thinks things will last--the romantic person has a desperate confidence that they won't.” F. Scott Fitzgerald, This side of paradise

I have been incredibly inspired by the work of F. Scott Fitzgerald lately. You know from my last posts I loved reading "The Great Gatsby" and "The beautiful and the damned" but in the last week I enjoyed another novel,  "This side of paradise" and I have discovered what I consider to be his greatest talent: writing short stories. I LOVE "Flappers and Philosophers", it's such a sophisticated compilation of stories and I can relate to so many typologies ( please read "Bernice bobs her hair" when you have time, you won't regret it!).

Just like I did when I deeply fell in love with J.D. Salinger's work, I chose not to look for any details on the author himself (I do know the basics though, it's common knowledge). It's so thrilling to think which parts of a character or a story actually reflect the writer's life. What is it with Mr. Fitzgerald that all the main characters have to be astonishingly  beautiful? Was he surrounded only by golden-haired girls and confident, witty boys? Was he a great fox trotter in real life? 

I chose to name this outfit post "Misty rose" because it's actually the color that both my top and a part of my skirt have. I'm quite unhappy with the results of this photoshoot, the skirt looks completely white, you can find the real version here. It is marvellous and I got it from Persunmall, I can't wait to wear it on the magical beaches of Greece!

  13. The photos are actually wonderful. Very pretty outfit. It reminds me of a modern take on 1920s romance. Such a sweet color.

  24. I love that you drew inspiration from such an incredible writer. I think you look so feminine, yet fragile (like a rose), but so classy and regal at the same time. That pleated skirt is absolutely to die for! I have not read This Side of Paradise, but I'll add it to my list of books to check out. Thanks for sharing :)

    Also, thanks for stopping by my blog. Would you like to follow each other to keep in touch?

  28. So beautiful! An amazing top and so beautiful skirt! It's nice and refreshing to have someone writing about so great writers, like F. Scott Fitzgerald and Salinger. Normally we see "new in, my skirt is Valentino" and so on, and then you wrote this beautiful post. I loved the part of romanticism, knowing things won't last. And it's true. Really a beautiful blog and attitude!
