Me again, trying to stay true to my word and post more often! This is a new series that I’ve been planning to start for ages, partly inspired by all the blogs that create outfits for film and television characters, but instead I will be creating outfits for fictional characters based on the descriptions in their books!
Over on my book blog, this fleeting dream, I’ve been celebrating the re-release of one of my favourite teen fiction series, Diary of a Crush, with a themed week, and today I decided to take it over here and create some outfits for Edie, the diarist herself, based on her own descriptions in the books. If you want to know what store or brand an item is from, click the book/date link to go through to Polyvore.
Edie is a bottle-blonde with a Sixties fringe and a love of vintage hunting and eBay shopping. She went to secondary school in Brighton (where she must have acquired much of her wardrobe – Brighton has great shops), but then moved to Manchester to do her A Levels at college. She loves dressing up and swapping clothes with her friend Shona, though Shona seems to borrow from Edie more of the time!
