Romantic Vintage Ballet Flats - Le Bunny Bleu
The reason for picking all of these characters is because they're very individual, strong girls. For the tea party it would be in an English garden in the countryside. We would wear party dresses, but everyone would add their on unique quirk to the outfit. We'd probably have long discussions and debates about anything and everything.
Jenny Mellor from An Education: I have a lot in common with her. Sometimes I just want to leave everything and experience a life of culture, but the life I want doesn't have any shortcuts. She's just an all around lovely person and I envy the fact she's a British schoolgirl living in the 1960s.
Esther Greenwood from The Bell Jar: I know that Esther is pretty much Sylvia Plath since the book is semi-autobiographical. I find Esther to be a fascinating person and see some of myself in her. She's descending into madness and on the outside she appears to be a perfect 1950s women, but she's falling apart. I've always had a fascination with the 1950s and suburbia because everything seems so perfect, but you know that just behind that white picket fence the family is falling apart. Esther is so honest about her opinions and thoughts.
Luna Lovegood form Harry Potter: She's always been my favorite Harry Potter character. I even made radish earrings that I used to wear to school. I love her because she's such an individual and a dreamer. She's not always right there and you constantly wonder what's going through her mind. She doesn't really care what others think though.
Cassie Ainsworth from Skins: Okay, I've only seen bits and pieces of Skins but Cassie is so lovely. She reminds me a lot of Esther - they're both losing themselves. She's so unique.
Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl: She's the most driven, ambitious character. From the beginning of the series she's portrayed as a b*tch, but there's so much more to her than just being an alpha of a clique. Unlike certain other young adult books, Blair has real depth to her. She has interests and passions. She's strong and stands up for herself. I love the season one Blair because she has standards and holds people to them. She's expects a lot from people.
Sam from The Perks of Being a Wallflower: I love what she says to Charlie at the end. I can sometimes be one of those people who lets people walk all over them and I don't take advantage of doing what I want. Sam says she likes when people go out and just do what makes them happy and not live to please others. She has amazing music taste and she's eccentric. I always love characters that don't conform to societal norms.
Gemma Doyle from A Great and Terrible Beauty: A British girl from India who goes to a London boarding school - basically my dream life. I love how she's a social outcast and gets in trouble yet she manages to befriend the most influential girls at the school. She seeks knowledge and is very bright, but she doesn't conform to what London society expects of her. She's very outspoken and that's what I love about her.
Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice: She's so complex and during a time of no rights from women she's really inspiring. I love how she is intelligent and independent. She doesn't live just to become wife - she's very forward and progressive thinking. I relate to her a lot since she's her father's daughter and has conflict with her mother. She doesn't just want to be married off like her mother wants.
