textbook:

yesterday marked the 50th anniversary of to kill a mockingbird. as such, let’s commemorate it with a scout finch post. i never thought of maycomb as a particularly fashionable town, but i always thought scout was pretty kickass. she reminds me a lot of elizabeth bennet, just somebody who’ll call you on your shit and knows right from wrong etc. anyway, she spent her summers with her brother jem and their friend dill. after a civil trial hits town, their lives get really interesting. scout’s father atticus defends an innocent man charged with raping a woman in town. despite evidence to exonerate the accused, he is found guilty and shot as he tries to escape prison. the girl’s family is humiliated and her father vows revenge against atticus. eventually, he attacks scout and her brother jem as they come home from a halloween pageant. luckily, their elusive neighbor boo radley (the subject of many scout, jem and dill’s summer adventures) comes to their aid. there’s a lot more to it but you should find the rest out on your own. it’s one of the greatest books ever.
1: watching the trial from the balcony: dress by rachel comey, shoes and socks by marc jacobs, bag by ralph lauren2: hanging around maycomb with jem and dill: dress and coat thing by marc jacobs, boots by michael kors3: picking up a gift from boo radley: dress by cynthia steffe, shoes by ferragamo 

I discovered this blog yesterday, and I must say I love it.
He takes characters from novels, and creates three outfits for them.  It’s amazing, and combines two things I love - pretty things (in this case clothing and shoes) and literature.  His take on Luna Lovegood is one of my favourites; this is his most recent post.
