Most people know that I am a huge Jane Austen fan and Pride and Prejudice is one of my favorite books. However, there’s something about Emma Woodhouse that always resonated with me. I think it’s because she’s flawed and reminds me so much of myself. She’s a bit immature, quite naive, so stubborn and very attached to her father.
A few months back I took this test, “Which Jane Austen Heroine Are You?” and I really wasn’t so surprised when the results turned out to be: Emma: “You are Emma Woodhouse of Emma! You like being the queen of your social circle (small and provincial as it may be), and feel it’s your duty to help those less influential than you. You often meddle in the affairs of others, though you do it with a pure heart. You are often deluded in your flights of fancy, but your good intentions and creative spirit make you someone anyone could like.”
I don’t know if much of that is true about me, but I will say that with age I’ve gotten wiser and much less of a meddler. But, at least it was always with good intentions.
I think y’all should do this challenge too. The most difficult thing was finding the right dress. I was trying to find something similar to the one Gwyneth Paltrow is wearing in this picture. I know it’s not exactly the same, but it was still fun trying to get the look.
I recently discovered the BBC version of Emma. I’ve never seen that one and I hear it’s very good. I’m trying to get my hands on the DVD, can’t wait to see how close it is to the book.
I hope you guys also do this challenge, I think it can be a lot of fun and something a bit different than the standard fashion posts.
