Rocking my Austens

Summertime is HERE people, and that means new tennis shoes!  And because I like to stand out, I made mine over, Jane Austen-style.

You can pick up fabric paint markers at your local art
supply purveyor. The fancypants laces are American Apparel.

Way back before camera phones, silhouette
portraits were the way to remember your sweetie.

So elegant, so pleasing, amirite?

Now that I've sparked your Austen fever, try one of these tribute books on for size.

Epic Fail by Claire LaZebnik

Prom & Prejudice by Elizabeth Eulberg

Enthusiasm by Polly Shulman

For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund

And for Pride and Prejudice with a twist of Downton Abbey, look for Longbourn by Jo Baker, coming out this October.
