Who would you choose to be if you could experience the life of any character?

I don't know if I could forever commit to the corset, though! If Mr. Darcy is as good as his reputation, however, restricted breathing would be a small price to pay.

Well here's the best part... besides the Darcy smooching...


"It seems to be pretty close to the mark that the early 19th century was the golden age of comfort in women's apparel until the present day."

Notes and illustrations on Regency clothing styles, with 1895 Charles E. Brock illustrations for Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice


I'd also like to be Laura Ingalls Wilder but only if we make it a DAY in the life... otherwise too much manual labor for this modern girl.

Great link, Debsi. I don't understand today's fashion (even though I wear a great deal of it). For example, why are all women's shirts made to be sheer? Especially in the summer. They're so sheer that you have to layer something underneath. Who wants to layer in the summertime?

I don't understand why more women don't wear dresses. Wrap jersey dresses are a miracle to the question of what to wear. They can be thrown in the washer & dryer, don't require ironing, and always look chic. I have approximately 2 dozen.

I'd never heard of Bertie Wooster before. I looked him up on Wiki, but that only goes so far. What is it about this Wooster character that you admire so much?

I would love to be Hermione Granger from Harry Potter because she is smart, adventurous, loyal to a fault, and beautiful inside and out.

Darn. You beat me to it. That is exactly who popped into my mind when I saw the question.
