Fashion by the Book (2) Coraline & Splintered

February 21, 2014 Fashion by the Book, Features 8


Fashion by the Book is a new meme here on Boricuan Bookworms, where we’ll be showcasing different outfits inspired by books! These outfits were created by LauraElisabeth, an avid reader of books who we met on Tumblr. Check out our first introduction post and interview with Laura here!

This Week’s Featured Outfits:

  • “Because,’ she said, ‘when you’re scared but you still do it anyway, that’s brave.”
  • “I don’t want whatever I want. Nobody does. Not really. What kind of fun would it be if I just got everything I ever wanted? Just like that, and it didn’t mean anything. What then?”

See Jennifer’s Review for Coraline, here.

“I hate you.”
“Only because of the way I make you feel.”
My fingernails eat into my palms. “Only because you bring out the worst in me.”
“Oh no, luv. I bring out the life in you.”








Marianne is currently reading Splintered, and LOVING it! Also, those shoes! <3

So what do you guys think of those outfits? Let us know in the comments below! 

Fashion by the Book is a Tumblr blog for both fashion and book lovers, where book covers and characters inspire outfits. It was created by LauraElisabeth, lover of books and extreme fangirl. When she’s not making amazing outfits, she’s either on Tumblr or her Facebook, sharing her outfits with the world.

We're two Puertorican girls who want to share our love of reading with the world. We sometimes substitute words for GIFS and either rant or fangirl a lot in our reviews. Talk to us about anything! 🙂
  • I love both books. Awesome choice for Coraline! Not sure if I can pull off that green dress 😀

  • Both of those dresses are stunning.

  • Oh I love that Splintered one, it kind of reminds me of Wicked (the musical) in a way! The Coraline one is a really classy look. Nice work!

  • Alise (Readers in Wonderland)

    I can’t believed I missed this post! Splintered is a favorite of mine and I absolutely love how well the outfit matches-great job!

    • I finished Splintered yesterday and I’ve got to say that I loved it! And that outfit is completely adorable 🙂

  • Oh, fun! We do a similar feature called DRESS THE PART as well, it’s always interesting to see what everyone comes up with. I like the colors on the dress you found for SPLINTERED, it’s very appropriate.

    • I’ll keep my eyes peeled for that feature on your blog, Wendy. I especially love the accesories for the Splintered outfit. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
