Fashion: A Bookish Look

A bookish look in honor of Jane Austen and her scathing character portrayals. Lizzy Bennet is one of my favorite characters in all of fiction, as she should be to any book lover and admirer of strong women who are also intelligent, flawed, and emotional. Austen knew what she was doing when she wrote characters like Lizzy, Emma, and Catherine, among others, who are smart, arrogant, funny, proud, naive, and dynamic. Austen consistently makes me laugh out loud. And I dearly love a laugh.

“I am only resolved to act in that manner, which will, in my own opinion, constitute my happiness, without reference to you, or to any person so wholly unconnected with me.” – Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

  • I’m sure you’re already familiar with Out of Print clothing, but you can find tons of good bookish t-shirts there! I have the Master & Margarita one.

    • I’ve actually never heard of that but I’ll have to check it out!

  • Very nice blouse, but still trying to figure out what you mean by Elizabeth Bennet is flawed!!

    • Haha, good point! She’s one of my favorite literary characters (maybe my all-time favorite), but no one is perfect!

  • I love this! That skirt fits like a dream.
