5 Fandom Friday - 5 Characters with my Favourite Fictional Fashion.

I had so much fun writing about characters with my favourite fictional fashion. I would love to raid ALL of these ladies wardrobes. 

1. Clara Oswald - Doctor Who
It is no secret that my love for Miss Clara Oswald knows no bounds. I thoroughly adore her smart and sassy ways! I also love her sense of style and have actively tried to fill my wardrobe with similar pieces. She loves coloured dresses, cute prints, tartan, cardigans and Jackets. I also love that whatever the planet, past, future or present, she always brings her handbag. Which is super handy when you have to carry around a teeny-tiny-TARDIS! 

2. Felicity Smoak - Arrow
The most stylish fictional (I stress fictional as I know you beautiful nerds could give her a run for her money) computer hacking nerd around. In my humble opinion of course. Set in a DC universe that is often quite dark and moody Felicity Smoak is a beacon of colour and light. Figure hugging, block colours and killer heels are a staple of Felicity's wardrobe. She is also a big fan of a keyhole cut out in a dress too. I love how even though she frequently gets caught in increasingly perilous situations her outfits don't get any more practical. Ever. Love her. 

3. Blair Waldorf - Gossip Girl
I love her preppy and perfect sense of style. Queen B ruled the Upper East Side with a clear sense of style. I mainly covet Blairs wardrobe for all the gowns and dresses she wore to all the endless parties, balls, charity galas that happened on Gossip Girl. Oh to have that social life! Blair was a contrast to the free flowing and equally Glamorous Serena Van Der Woodsen. Blair was clean lines and a polished style. Not afraid of colour or accessories she loved hats, headbands and scarves but all of them were chic. Modern day Audrey Hepburn. xoxo

4. Trixie Franklin - Call The Midwife
I adore Trixie. Out of all the Midwives at Nonnotus House, Trixie is definitely the most fashion conscious and I love how her style has evolved as the years have progressed in the series. In the 50's we saw Trixie rocking a wiggle dress like no-one else and looking pretty and perfect in a circle skirt with masses of petticoats. In more recent series she has chopped her hair and her hemline. She is wearing sleeker more 60's style fashions. I'm dying to see how both her character and wardrobe progress with the show. 


5. Holly Golightly - Breakfast at Tiffany's
This is the first time I remember watching a film thinking "I want to dress like that" and being completely crushed that it was the 90's not the 60's, I was an awkward teenager and I was NEVER going to be that stylish. Audrey Hepburn is an utter goddess and I love everything that she has done but Breakfast at Tiffany's is the style I covet most. From the classic black dress that everyone immediately thinks of, her striking orange coat, even in a jumper and her hair wrapped in a towel singing Moon River her style is effortless. I even love her sleep mask with the little closed eyes! Perfection.

I really enjoyed writing this post thanks to The Nerdy Girlie and Super Space Chick for starting it all. Special thanks this week to @1CuriousWriter for the brilliant post suggestion. It has been a pleasure to write. I love my girls and their fabulous outfits which reminds me I should probably casual cosplay them all at some point! Which outfits do you lust over? Who would make your list? 

Much love

  2. Add me to the Clara appreciation society! I love her! She's my favourite companion hands down and she always looks adorable. I'm also a fan of Jess from New Girl. I like her quirky style. She also loves a fun print - as do I - and she's not afraid of colour. So fun to see Blair Waldorf being talked about again. I loved Queen B! xo
