5 'Emma' inspired dresses

This weekend brings Jane Austen's beloved comedy, Emma, to the big screens. And along with it, a brand new obsession with costume since my recent Little Woman episode last month.
Hayley's dress: Sister Jane

In celebration of the film (which looks like it has been set inside a giant cream cake), my friend Lucy and I decided to re-create some of the looks with dresses that you can find on the high-street right now.
Lucy's dress: ASOS

We had so much fun researching the film, characters, and period - sourced our favourite pieces and headed up to the Georgian Quarter with our cameras.

It was important for us to style the dresses how we would genuinely wear them today/early spring - queue ankle boots instead of slippers, and there wasn't an upper length glove or set of pearls in sight!

We wanted to include wearable dresses that took inspiration from the film and Georgian period - rather than looking like we're attending an 18th century costume party. And we fell so much in love with the dresses that we soon started planning spring/summer picnics and days out.

Lucy & I had so much fun putting this together - it's such a joy to be creative together from the process of research, to shopping for the perfect dress, to shooting together and posting something we're both really proud of!
