Bri. Michael and I stayed up almost all night watching the six hours of the BBC Pride and Prejudice, which by the way is the ONLY good version of the book. I'm still trying to figure out why Lady Katherine comes to see the Bennets at midnight in the Keira Knightly version. So weird. But I digress. Bri and Michael are planning on going as Jane and Bingley for Halloween, so she was trying to get ideas about fabrics to use and whatnot. So while we were watching it I got on my Polyvore account and was fiddling around, and began to wonder what Elizabeth Bennet would have worn had she lived today. This is what I came up with. I'm fairly sure I need these shoes.
Thoroughly Modern Jane
So this got my thinking about what other classic book characters would wear. Here is the results.
Modern Anne Shirley:

Modern Jo March:

These are just a few of them. I may post some more when I get back from San Francisco.


  1. That is the cutest collage! All three of them are among my favourite book characters (I love Anne Shirley...she was my heroine as a child), and I think you have their modern-day style pinned down completely. I want pretty much all of those items. And I agree, the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice is the best. ;)
