Anne of Green Gables Fashion Week: Day 5

Today for Bramblewood Fashion’s Anne of Green Gables Fashion Event I am posting pictures of the 1914 Afternoon dress (available for purchase here) that was made for me two years ago. (Correct – I did not make it. :P)
***
The skirt of the dress was made from eyelet, which was actually pretty nice. The sash was actually from a bridesmaid’s dress from my parents’ wedding.

Anne might have worn a dress like this sometime between Anne of Avonlea (the movie) and The Continuing Story. (I’m not sure what the dates are in the books, because the only one of the books I have read is the first one. :S My bad.)
***
This picture makes me think of in the movie when Anne meets Diana’s baby Fred. 🙂

“At first I wanted a girl, so I could call her Anne; but now I wouldn’t trade baby Fred for a million girls!”

Anne of Green Gables Fashion Week: Day 4

Today I’m just posting pictures of my favorite of Anne’s outfits – the Brown Vest Outfit.
***
I LOVE LOVE LOVE the watch she has pinned to the vest, and the hat just fits so well over her hair…(You know, I should just do a post on Anne’s hair… :P)
***
The dramatic pose that reminds me of me.
***
And of course, Anne with Gilbert; in this picture, she isn’t wearing the vest (obviously). I am going to get a picture like this when I get engaged – I mean, honestly! It’s cute, and would be even cuter if my fiance and I could wear similar clothes to the ones Anne and Gilbert are wearing here. *goofy smile*
***
Elinor has offered to make me this outfit if I buy all the fabric. So…I need to buy the fabric…I just haven’t gotten around to it yet. Don’t worry – you’ll find out when I have. 😛

Anne of Green Gables Fashion Week: Day 3

“He assured me it would turn my hair a beautiful raven black…”I’ve always shuddered at the thought of accidentally dying my hair the wrong color – I hate cutting my hair enough already; it would be much worse to be forced to cut it! As Anne says, “There’s nothing romantic about having your hair cut off because you dyed it.”

Fortunately, I did not have to dye my hair for this picture – http://www.picnik.com was a help there. 😉

Anne of Green Gables Fashion Week: Day 2

Elinor suggested yesterday that I participate in the Anne of Green Gables Fashion Event, hosted by Bramblewood Fashion, this week. I hadn’t been planning on it at first because I couldn’t think of anything to wear for it…but then, in order to figure out what Anne would wear in modern days, I need to use my imagination…like Anne…and I shouldn’t let my imagination get rusty; so I’m working on it. 😉

Today’s combo is called…

:::Black and White:::What I’m wearing:

Blouse – Fashion Bug
Denim skirt – Calvin Klein
Shoes – Kmart (boring, I know ;))
Silver hoop earrings

Kitty couldn’t resist joining me, especially since I was wearing the same colors as she. 😉

This is the kind of outfit I can imagine Anne wearing on a day at college. I can picture her sitting in the library with Gilbert, poring over mathematics… 🙂
