FIDM Is On Tour!  |   Main  |  Sleep in a Forest

Last weekend some friends and I got a chance to see The Jane Austen Book Club. It's an adorably girlie film that borrows plots from Ms. Austen and naturally comes complete with happy endings galore--plus, it stars hottie Hugh Dancy. Hard to go wrong there. But from a fashion standpoint, the best part had to be Emily Blunt's costumes, which were incredibly cute! Blunt (remember her from The Devil Wears Prada?) plays a high school French teacher whose wardrobe is appropriately romantic, yet sophisticated. The picture above isn't one of her best outfits, but it's the only full-length shot I could find. Costume Designer Johnetta Boone, who also worked on The Notebook, is responsible for creating the looks. --Kim

a good amount of blunt's wardrobe came from anthropologie. some of the other ladies donned anthropologie as well, but blunt wore it most. due to the time difference between shooting and the actual movie release, the ensembles are acutally from last year but if you're looking for similar accouterment you might want to check out

I love the purse Jocelyn carries around in the Jane Austen Book Club movie - where is it from??

Does anyone know where they got the character Jocelyn's jacket she wears in several scenes as well as the purse she is carrying throughout the movie. I loved both but can't find out the designer information online. If anyone knows I would appreciate it.

Mabel, did you find out what purse Jocelyn is carrying in Jane Austen Book Club? I love it, too, and would like to know what it is.

Did any of you guys find out where Jocelyn's purse is from? I also fell in love with it and I've looked all over but I can't find any information on it. Please let me know if you do.

I would like to also know where to get Jocelyn's jacket? I would love to get my hands on one! I have tried researching the internet and no luck! Thanks

Chloe Paddington is the purse she is carrying in that movie.

Anyone know what corduroy jacket Grigg was wearing in the movie?
