Welcome to gatsby & glitter!

About the name:

Part of the reason that I hesitated to start a blog for a long time was because of the name issue. What title could possibly sum me up, and explain what I’m here to talk about? One afternoon I just decided to go for it and started writing down everything I love, and hoped that things would come together. And as soon as I paired gatsby & glitter together, I knew that was it.

The Great Gatsby is my favorite book of all time. From the moment I read it in high school, I was hooked. 1920’s style just blows me away. There’s always that question—“if you could live in another time period, what would you choose?”. I would choose the 1920’s. Hands down. Every time.

And glitter is just fun, plain and simple. Who doesn’t like things with a little glitter on them?

And combined, the two sum up my style and philosophy pretty perfectly. The mix of classic and new, old and fun, antique and unique. And it sounds pretty, which is perhaps the most important thing of all.

About me:

I’m a cubicle worker by day—big-dreamer, style and culture devotee on nights and weekends. I’m from a small New England town, and live in NYC now (with an all-too short stint in Paris in between).
