I've finally finished Pride and Prejudice! And what an amazing book! Jane Austen captures the characters and their idiosyncracies so well. Aswell as the confusions of love and hate I went shopping today with my friend Jess across the road. I bought a 30s style hat from H&M which'll be fab for winter! We ended up walking home! It was freezing and scary. We held hands all the way home! But we had a lovely long talk and it was great to catch up. I got home at 8:30 so missed half of the final episode of Twiggy's Frock Exchange. It's a brilliant programme so if you missed it youtube it! Following was British Style Genius. This episode was about Vivienne Westwood, John Galliano and Alexander McQueen! 3 of my favourite designers! I was in heaven! The highlight was where Vivienne described where she found her inspiration for, and how she created, those amazing lace dresses. She had a large rag of lace, perhaps from a church, which she photocopied many times and cut out. she then positioned it onto a mannequin to create the seamless dresses. It took her a week to then get the paper from mannequin to flat! I desperately wish I could be as inventive and innovative as any of these designers! THEN there was a programme... I think 'imagine' about love in literature which was just gorgeous!
