Wednesday Cover Story: Shopping inspiration from The Firebird
Early copies of The Firebird, by Susanna Kearsley (out Jan 2013) came in this week and we have all been fawning over the cover – my favourite now amongst all of Kearsley’s books. (And a nice chunky hardback it is too.)
And I must confess there’s probably another reason I’ve been gazing at the cover – because I quite fancy the woman’s lovely raspberry-red dress. I am starting to see a pattern emerging (I already took a shining to Maisie Dobbs’ hat on the cover of A Lesson in Secrets – see previous blog) but can you blame me for coveting an eye-catching sleeveless dress? It is the festive party season after all. (My fortune cookie from today’s lunch at Dim T announced “Good clothes open many doors. Go shopping”. So I’m taking it as a sign.) And, if I find the dress, I might just accessorize it with diamond pendant earrings and a mottled red-orange feather boa and really rock The Firebird look.
Any other book covers you’ve come across that have inspired an outfit?
