Haunt me, then!

It's November. When the wind howls and the landscape grows forlorn, I turn to my favorite book, Wuthering Heights. All those things we're supposed to fear - chilled isolation, feverish dreams, even loss of a beloved - suddenly become romantic to me. Death cannot stop true love.

Here are a few Wuthering Heights finds ...

Sand Evening Regency Dress by Cream Cake Costumes, perfect for wandering the windy moors.

Wuthering Heights Family Tree by Lizzy Stewart.

For me, ghosts are a measurement of our loss. When we haven't lost anyone, ghosts are scary, something to be feared. But when we've lost someone we truly love, suddenly ghosts become a fantasy, a forlorn hope of one last encounter. The best ghost stories, in my opinion, are love stories.

Also, I'm still waiting for the perfect Wuthering Heights movie! I loved Ralph Fiennes, but someday perhaps Clive Owen could be persuaded to play Heathcliff : )

CreamCake, I love the regency dress! Such a beautiful and flattering cut. I was truly born in the wrong century.

I wonder if I could get away with wearing one of those in an everyday environment ... I suppose it all comes down to styling.
