My first post

Hoo boy, my first post. Of course I can’t expect miracles, but I’m ardently hoping at least one person will see this post. So, without any further delay, on to the post –

As I’ve mentioned in my ‘About’ page, I am a bookworm. A literature lover. Plain and simple. So, for my first post, I thought I could translate some of the style from my favourite reads to wearable and affordable outfits. I’ll start out with the Jane Austin classic, Emma.

The heavy Victorian style in its original form will of course raise eyebrows unless your going to a costume party or its Halloween. But to translate the style into modern-day dressing is not all that hard.To describe the dressing of that era in two words, it would be – elaborate and feminine. Think lace, ruffles, bows, pearls, and anything romantic.

Outfit #1

Lace dress, Blazer, Heart Tights, nude pumps, rose charm bracelet, floral bangle, necklace

This outfit absolutely exudes romance. Use either the floral bangle or the rose charm bracelet to brighten up the look. Throw on the tights and a cute blazer to stay warm.

Or if you’re not into dresses


modern vic

cardigan, floral tank, jeans, necklace, oxfords

A pretty floral tank with a ruffled cardi on top can go the same way as the outfit #1 only without the dress. The jeans are also another way to include white in your wardrobe during winter, and the oxfords add a polished element to the ensemble.

Did you like these outfits? Have you read Emma? What are your favourite books? Let me know!

    Nice outfits! I like both of them, especially the floral print top from the second one!
