"There was an excitement to her voice…a promise that…there were gay exciting things hovering in the next hour." -F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
East Egg was a far different world from what most of us know. Fictional home of some of New York's most fashionable and affluent residents, life was centered around luxury and pleasure. Prohibition may have been in full swing, but bootleggers were made millionaires and the rich basked in their clandestine partying.
"The king’s daughter, the golden girl."
One of the most beautiful women of East Egg was Daisy Buchanan. Daisy's charming, affable snobbery manifested in pure elegance that has inspired women for generations. She's certainly not the most morally upstanding woman, but fortunately you can emulate Daisy's irresistible charm without becoming a "silly fool."
