Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries: The Movie

Thursday, May 28, 2020

I was first introduced to Miss Fisher's in the most random way. I was browsing through Netflix and I found the show, added to my watchlist, and promptly forgot about it. I didn’t get back to it until people on my Twitter account we’re really excited about it so I decided to give it a chance. I'm so glad that I did because I needed up falling helplessly in love. I love not only the characters and the costumes but also the storyline of the show. As I’ve done with the other shows on this blog, I am going to break down certain aspects of the show in several posts. In this post, I will be talking about the movie: Miss Fisher & the Crypt of Years. This is even more special because I actually contributed to the Kickstarter for the movie!

Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries: The Costumes

Monday, May 25, 2020

I was first introduced to Miss Fisher's in the most random way. I was browsing through Netflix and I found the show, added to my watchlist, and promptly forgot about it. I didn’t get back to it until people on my Twitter account we’re really excited about it so I decided to give it a chance. I'm so glad that I did because I needed up falling helplessly in love. I love not only the characters and the costumes but also the storyline of the show. As I’ve done with the other shows on this blog, I am going to break down certain aspects of the show in several posts. In this post, I will be talking about the costumes.


I'll be very honest when I admit that I wasn't the biggest fan of the costumes of this show when I first watched it. As the show is set in the 1920s, I wasn't sure what to expect when it came to the costumes. But during the re-watches, I slowly fell in love. There's something so incredibly chic and savvy about the clothes that Phryne wears. They're a great mix of masculine and feminine--trousers with floral prints for example--and really show who Phryne is. All of the costumes above really show a side to Phryne that we love: she loves to dress up and wear clothes she's comfortable in but she also shows a more practical side. 
What I love about these two costumes is the mix of hates, over coats, and the clothes underneath. The colors aren't bold but paired with the patterns gives it such a pop. I love the simplicity of these outfits but also their elegance. 
When Phryne goes to a party, however, is when the fashion flare of the 1920s come into play. I love seeing more about flapper girls, what their clothes would look like, and especially how people would move in them. I'm not sure if that makes sense but the combination of the fabrics and silhouettes of clothes can really determine how a person might ruction in them. Like I mentioned above, Phryne knows when to wear clothes that are more practical. It's fun to see her give way to practicality when it comes to a more elegant affair. 

Do y'all have any favorite costumes from this show? I love the colors, patterns and silhouettes so much.

Downton Abbey: The Costumes

Monday, May 11, 2020

For the past week, I have spent all of my time with the illustrious Crawley family once again. I've watched Downton Abbey since it first aired in 2011. I love period dramas in all forms (TV shows, movies, books, etc), and Downton Abbey was no exception. I distinctly remember falling in love with the world, the characters, the setting and so much more. I saw that the entire show was on Amazon Prime, and with nothing but time on my hand, I began my re-watch. In this post and the next few, I'll share about my love for this show by talking about my favorite characters, stories, and the costumes/set for this show!
