“Murder, She Wrote” Series 1 – Episode 11
(Post 1 of 4)
Fashion Tip learned :
If you need to look extra elegant, monochromatic outfits are the way to go, especially if you are choosing the darker shades of your favourite colour.
Life Lesson learned :
If someone patronises you, just politely put them back in their place, all whilst beaming with the friendliest smile you have!
On a side note: Thank you very much everyone for your patience and all your kind messages! I know I have not written on this blog for ages, but relocating to a new country half way across the world and starting a new job really took up a lot of my time and strength. Thank you again for being so kind to me!! X
When the congressman representing Maine suddenly dies of a heart attack, someone needs to fill his vacant seat in Washington for a short period of time, until a long-term successor is found. Obviously the choice is Jessica, who takes this role very seriously and flies to Washington to serve her country.
I really loved this episode because it kept me guessing the identity of the murderer until the very end. Also, Jessica’s wardrobe is gorgeous: she obviously needs to dress to impress, for her role as congresswoman, and she is absolutely flawless in every scene!
At the beginning of this episode, however, Jessica is still in Cabot Cove, at home, and even if not as glamorous as later on, she still looks lovely wearing a simple brown cable-knit cardigan (the same she wore in Episode 4), over a white shirt, beige trousers and flat brown shoes.
A simple white shirt (like this one by Uniqlo), a pair of beige trousers (like these by La Redoute), and some simple brown loafers (like these classic ones by Office, or these pretty ones available at Urban Outfitters) complete her look.
Every time Jessica’s house is shown, no matter how briefly, I have fun in looking at the décor and trying to find some similar pieces.
The first thing that attracted my attention is the portrait that seems to be of William Shakespeare hanging from her wall.
If you want your very own Bard looking at you enigmatically, you can buy a print from the National Portrait Gallery website, or from Art.com.
And when it comes to vintage teacups, Etsy is an Aladdin’s cave of wonders: I love this Delft blue teacup made in Holland and sold by Etsy seller Camp Honeybelle, this Blue Onion design teacup made in England and sold by Etsy seller This Vintage Heart, and this other Dutch Delft teacup by Etsy seller Le Vintage Galleria.
