Great Gatsby Fashion: The Good, The Bad, and The Must-Avoid Looks

Baz Luhrmann's highly anticipated film adaptation of The Great Gatsby hit theaters Friday, May 10. With sparkly, soirée-ready costumes designed by Miuccia Prada and Catherine Martin, the decadent flick has spawned a slew of Daisy- and Jay-inspired fashions that range from glamorous to downright gaudy.

While it may sound appealing, draping yourself in velvet, fringe, and patterns galore, some Prohibition-style restraint is in order -- if solely to save you from looking like a costumed clown. Here are the good, the bad, and the must-avoid looks.

Tania Katan to Host "The Most Of" Lit Lounge with a Must-See Lineup

When Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art announced it was bringing performer, author, and kickass entertainer Tania Katan on board to mix things up a year ago, we knew we were in for something good.

Almost a year later, we've sat in a sold-out SMoCA Lounge a number of times to experience a number of Katan's programs, including Lit Lounge. The event, billed by Katan as "a little rock'n'roll, a little This American Life," is a monthly opportunity to listen to selected authors and performers from Arizona and across the country. These lineups have shared their stories, paired with live music, to a live audience in the SmoCA Lounge.

And this month, Katan's taking Lit Lounge to a whole new level.

Funny how reporters think that anything involving guns must be orchestrated by the NRA.

The Flashbang holster has been on the market for about a year now, and has no relationship to the NRA except that theirs is one of the several on-line stores that sells it.
