This outfit is inspired Anthony Doerr's All the Light We Cannot See. I downloaded this book two or three days ago and I've already finished. I was a little hesitant to start this one because I haven't read a historical fiction novel in a while, but I really enjoyed the beautiful language and spectacular story line.
This book won the Pulitzer for Fiction this year and was an instant New York Times best seller when it was released last May. The story follows a blind French girl and a German boy who meet in occupied France during WWII.
Marie-Laure's outfits are never described in detail except for her great uncle's shoes and oversized trench coat, so I went with a menswear inspired shoe and coat.
Doerr's language is beautiful, but the characters was what really made me love this book. While I wouldn't call it an easy beach read, I did find the story lines interesting enough to keep me interested through the whole thing. Also Doerr is a wizard of suspense in literature.
If you haven't yet pick up All The Light We Cannot see and if you have take a peek at this article I found to be really interesting.
