Courageous Woman

Courageous Woman

Featuring *SK*

“There is a stubbornness about me that never can bear to be frightened at the will of others. My courage always rises at every attempt to intimidate me.”

Elizabeth Bennet – Pride and Prejudice

This picture is a perfect example of why I say I don’t want to limit myself to one style of blogging.  For me it is so much more satisfying when I can be inspired by something whether it is fashion or decor, modern or vintage.

I thought of the movie Pride and Prejudice immediately when I saw this dress by *SK*.  I love the movie and the main character, Elizabeth Bennet,  or perhaps I should say I love the personality given to the character by the book’s author, Jane Austen.  Elizabeth is courageous, playful, independent and intelligent….she just doesn’t put up with crap, you know?

The quote above is one of my favorites.  I have always felt that same way for as long as I can remember but didn’t realize how fortunate that really was until I was older.  Peer pressure has never been an issue for me at any point in my life and I realize how lucky I was to have escaped it.  I have never felt a need to fit in if that meant pretending and I have never been afraid to admit to my likes or dislikes about something, even if they put me in the minority.

These strengths begin to be formed in childhood and I realize not everyone is allowed to nurture these strengths.  My wish for all is that you have the same courage Elizabeth had and that it rises up when you need it most!

Little Red….Corvette?

Little Red.....Corvette

Thinking outside the box, I put my own spin on this classic Little Red Riding Hood shot and I love the result. The pose is by Fashiowl Poses and is just one of many with a Red Riding Hood theme, perfect for this round of Enchantment. The theme is The Brothers Grimm so expect delightful fairy tale themed items. Enchantment starts today and Fashiowl Poses has 4 different sets with props included. The poses are very versatile and can be used in a number of ways on their own, something I look for in all poses. Be sure you don’t miss Enchantment..its magical!

Grimm Enchantment

Grimm Enchantment

I must admit, I am super excited for the upcoming round of Enchantment, which starts November 10th.  The theme is the Brothers Grimm and I can’t wait to see what all the creators have come up with.  I collect vintage childrens books and have several that are collections of fairy tales.  The Grimms Fairy Tales have given us the well known classics such as Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Rapunzel and some of the more obscure but delightful, like The Goose Girl, Snow White and Rose Red and The Bremen Town Musicians.  The dress I am wearing, Sabrina, is by *SK* and will be available at the event and the cane is included.  Don’t miss Enchantment…It’s sure to be…Enchanting.
