Living in Pride & Prejudice

Truth be told, I’ve never struggled over a living in post as much as I’ve struggled with this one. Every girl who holds a small but eternal burning flame in her heart for Mr. Darcy understand that Pride and Prejudice is not something to be taken lightly. These beautiful decorations based on the movie come from designer Amy Merrick.

For Janeites like us who care about these things, it’s important to note the epic war raged between the die hard BBC miniseries P&P fans and the Keira Knightly fans. All I can say is that Colin Firth will always be my Mr. Darcy. But I will allow that the 2005 version is mighty pretty, Keira or no. Now that I’ve exposed myself as a girl who spends most of her free time home alone with cats and a pint of ice cream comparing and contrasting various Austen adaptations, let’s pretend we never had this conversation, shall we? Thank you.
