Tell Me A Fable...
Today shall be full of storybooks!
Reviews, anticipations, and
dressing like Alice!
Wishing to be the Witchy Forest Woman
in the most mysterious cottage!
Let us go forth!
Meh, not so much. In all fairness, I was impressed with her talent for capturing Lizzy's character, Darcy's, only usually. The language was well-used, though when it slips, it very obviously slips. I really enjoyed their conversations, and reading of Lizzy taking on the responsibilities as Mistress of Pemberly. But basically, this is just smutty fanfic. Well-researched, enjoyable smutty fanfic, but fanfic nonetheless. Fluffy, with too many new characters and without much depth or conflict, and not even coming within a mile of the original writing. But hey, if you're in the mood for fluff and rather exhausting romance after watching one of the film versions of Pride & Prejudice, this is your best bet. It's still better than Twilight*!
(*I've read Twilight three times. I'm already rereading this. I am proud of neither fact.)

And now for things I greatly anticipate!

It looks so whimsical and magical
and floaty and weird!
AND REAL COSTUMES!
Let us hope this becomes the norm!
Tim Burton, March 5th, 2010
Do I even have to tell you WHY?
I don't care if Johnny Depp + Tim Burton
has become a gimmick.
TIM BURTON MADE AN
ALICE IN WONDERLAND.
AND JOHNNY DEPP IS THE MAD HATTER.
Amy plans to attend in costume.
And now, Wardrobe Proect!
I had forgotten about that cute little
blouse, and was wary of the higher waist.
Both work well on me, I think!
And the white stockings + black shoes
make me smile too.
Of course, I do somewhat look like
Alice as a 50's Houswife...hmm...
These witchy babies are a
recent purchase from
my new favorite Etsy seller!
She's also a pretty awesome friend.
Come soon, spring!
This dress is one of my favorite
Free People purchases.
So many things about it make me happy.
