Four Week Challenge: Matilda Style Inspiration

The other night, Matilda was on TV. I learned that my brother had never seen the movie, and as a fan of both the movie and the book, I decided to watch it. And make him watch it. 

I fell in love with the charm of the movie all over again. Take this scene for example!

We know Miss Honey's poor, but wouldn't you kill to join that tea party? I would! She lives in such a charming, rustic cottage.

And Matilda! Seriously. If reading a lot gave you psychokinesis... I bet I would still do it. I used to sit with my spoon in a bowl of cereal and try to make it move. And despite her young age, Matilda is quite the little style inspiration! Notice her trademark bow and her peter pan collar in the picture above. She dresses her age, but it's... so cute.

In order to complete the Inspiration challenge for week one, I drew from her.  

Week 1 (May 16th - May 22nd): Inspiration: TV & Movies - For the first week, you will draw the inspiration for your outfits from your favorite television and movie characters. For more info on the Inspiration challenge, check out this post!

Headband: Cloth Scrap (Left over)
Shirt: XXI (Unknown)
Dress: Divided by H&M (Thrifted for $10)
Shoes: Antionio Melani (Old)
Book: Sherlock Holmes (OF COURSE!)

I look really young in this outfit, but I think I did Matilda justice by carrying a book.

I would like to leave you with a few clips from the the infamous cake scene. My inner glutton loves this scene.
