The results of Friday’s exams have been posted this morning (and yes, I had been checking all weekend) and truth be told, I was terrified of what the results would be. I had the worst feeling about the exam because I had a really crap day Friday. But luckily I passed and I am very very grateful. One down, three to go.

Style Crush: Laura Spencer
Over a year ago I posted over on my old blog (which is no longer active), a post in homage to Laura Spencer. I wrote about how by a strange coincidence thanks to my lovely sister I came across a vlog series on youtube called The Lizzie Bennet Diaries (a modern adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice). Anyways, as I am now in the midst of working on my thesis, I recently re-watched the entire series and have fallen in love with Laura Spencer (aka Jane Bennet) all over again.
Jane Bennet is a beautiful person, both in character and in appearance, and it’s so easy to like her. But in this particular adaptation, she is a bit more. In other versions she can be a tad two-dimensional, she doesn’t has the liveliness of Lizzie and usually doesn’t undergo any major character development. She just stays and waits until Binngley comes back and proposes to her. However, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries is different. I love how they modernized one of my favorite stories and made the characters and the story itself come to life in a believable way. Anyways, back to Jane. I wanted to share some inspiration photos from her tumblr page because she has once again become my Style Crush!
This one is probably my favorite. The bicycle pin is so precious and the whole look is just adorable and vintage inspired and wonderful. (On a side note: I have fallen in love with pins lately. Such an easy way to add a little something unique to an outfit right?)
Her look is both vintage and modern. I adore her. Really. I love how her clothes are so unique and the styling is really appropriate. She wears little hats or headbands or just has really perfect hair (the braids, swoon). This last picture is Laura Spencer modeling for ModCloth. She’s herself here but still in tune with her character of Jane. It’s another side of Miss Spencer but you can imagine Jane Bennet wearing these clothes as well (especially the 2nd dress – I LOVE the second dress!!).
