Anne of Green Gables// TV/Movie Inspired Fashion Event Day 1 (1900s-1920s)

There's New York Fashion Week, then there's London Fashion Week, and then there's Milan, and Paris, and then there's the TV/Movie Inspired Fashion Blog event *this week* at Bramblewood Fashion. If you're not already familiar, I'll let the hostess, Ashley, explain:

"For each day of the week there will be a set theme for your outfits, you will then take pictures of your outfit and post them on your blog. Once your post is live you will then link-up your post to the link-y on my blog each day. It is alright if you have never seen any of shows/movies I suggest for your outfit inspiration, as some of my suggestions for outfit ideas will be from shows I've never seen myself -- I just like to get outfit inspiration from them."

Sunday's theme was 1900s-1920s, and I went with Anne of Green Gables. I've never seen the movies, but I have read the books. I love Anne's  spunky character- and the smart-looking clothing styles the young people wore then.

I hope I'm not the only girl who has ever resorted to wearing pants to interpret an Anne of Green Gables look.This outfit gave me a lot of trouble at first. I have a severe lack of cameos, peter pan collars, hats, and long skirts in my closet! Quite unlike most fashionable young ladies of about 1913... and 2013. But I'm going to try to get through this fashion event without buying anything new or making anything unless I already have all the supplies. So, besides all the aforementioned things, I noticed a lot of browns, pinks, and whites in the movie wardrobes, as well as lace, pin stripes, plaid, and high buttoned collars. I like to wear tees over this white shirt, but I've never tried buttoning the top button. I think it works in this case, especially with the butterfly pinned near the throat. Usually I wear the butterfly as a pendant, and I just let the slack in the chains drape a little. Altogether I'm happy with the outfit. Even though it's very loosely inspired by Anne of Green Gables, it's a new way of wearing my clothes that I wouldn't have thought of otherwise, and that's being true to the spirit of this event! 

Monday's theme is 1940s- almost as difficult for me as this one, but I found a brown houndstooth blazer in my closet that just might work! I hope all of you join in!

  1. Hello Emily!! I have the very same pink lace shirt!!! I love how you paired it with a white button up shirt and brown pants!! I'm actually planning to make a brown _skirt_ to go with my pink lace shirt! :)

    Oh my! You haven't seen the Anne of Green Gables movie?! It is one of my favorites! Of course they don't follow the books exactly, but it is still a lovely movie!! Check it out at the library!!! :)

    Blessings!

    1. I know, shocking. My family doesn't watch many movies partly because it's time we could spend talking and doing something else together and partly because we like them to be squeaky clean. Lately we've been watching something on DVD every week or two. I love a good story, whether it's a book or a movie or some other form, so I'll consider adding Anne of Green Gables to my growing list of movies-to-see-sometime!

  2. Cute outfit! Anne of Green Gables is a huge favorite of mine, although when it comes to the books, I like Emily of New Moon better than Anne. Anne in the movies, though, is one of my classic favorites!

  4. Hi! I love your outfit and how you chose Anne as your inspiration!
    And I like how you played around with your clothes and wore pants instead.
    They still fit in with the theme!
