Fiction to Fashion, my new favorite website

I discovered a new blog to love called Fiction to Fashion. The creator, Julie, posts outfits inspired by various books. And the great part is that she includes links to the websites where you can purchase them! It’s totally great for book nerds who love fashion, such as myself. My mantra is “boots & books!”

My favorite outfits are below but click here to check out the rest.

I can see myself wearing this outfit in the spring or summer. My favorite item is the trousers.

I read Hartman’s Seraphina last year and this outfit fits the novel. I could see Eskar wearing this outfit. The colors and the leather vest gives it a Steampunk look, which fits the nature of the novel.

“Literary Fashions for Serious Book Nerds” — Flavorwire

For those of us who are fashionable book-nerds, here is one for you. Flavorwire has compiled a list of outfits inspired by books and/or made from them. My favorites are below:

By Carrie Ann Schumacher

This beautiful dress was made by Carrie Ann Schumacher from 50 romance novels. It’s very lovely and represents well what it is made from.

by Tata Christiane

This outfit, designed by Tata Christiane, is based on Gabriel García Márquez’s, 100 Years of Solitude. It is made to represent magical realism, an important element in  Márquez’s novel; though, I must agree with Flavorwire here that the outfit is more magical than realistic. I like it because it is whimsical.

 

“10 Celebrities’ Surprisingly Bizarre Homes” — Flavorwire

Visit Flavorwire to see pics of the other bizarre homes.

Here is a cool post that I found on Flavorwire. The homes featured are truly bizarre, for example, Betsey Johnson’s “Betseyville” located in Mexico. It’s very colorful but totally matches her style; I quite like it.

My favorite is above — Julian Schnabel’s pink palazzo, located in New York. My second favorite is Christina Aguilera’s macabre mansion in Beverly Hills, California. Click here to see pictures of the other bizarre homes.
