BBC Sherlock Appreciation Post

Hiiii you all.

I know I've been.... absent, to say the least. And I know you all would much rather read about something 100% vintage/history related, but that's not what I'm here for. This is a post (one of many) that I've been wanting to do for a while now. It's about fashion, so you should like that. And it's about BBC's Sherlock series, so if you aren't aware of it listen up!
I am a massive Sherlock Holmes fan. Especially the newer BBC series, which is basically everything I love about SH but in modern London. It is really beautifully filmed and edited and styled and everything about it is really just perfect. And Martin Freeman. He is the best Watson. And frankly I like Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock way more than anyone I have seen. I think he fits the role really well.

Anyway, this isn't really about those guys (though a future post might be,) it is about The Woman. If you haven't watched the second season yet then you haven't had the honor of being introduced to this character. And since I believe season 2 is being aired sometime this weekend on TV in America, this is sort of a teaser.

"A Scandal in Belgravia", the first episode of the season as well as the one involving the Woman, is MY FAVORITE episode. Right up there with the last episode of season 2. I have watched it probably 8 times now. I love it. I do. I do. I do.

And the Woman.
She is styled in a very midcentury manner. But obviously with modern "twists", as they say.
So I wanted to show you. Because she really has lovely things. They all do on this show. If you don't believe me check out this blog (it's AMMMAAAAAAZING!)

Without further delay; The Woman:

Im going to go back to the island (where the internet is scarce) but I hope to read up on your lovely blogs soon.

  1. Yes, I LOVED LOVED LOVED this episode, too. Fascinating modern take on Irene Adler!!!!

  2. Nice review of the episode.

    For a different look at this episode, check out my review .


  3. I am totally in love with Sherlock. It's got to be the best adaptation since the series with Jeremy Brett. And Martin Freeman is totally adorable. Really liked the way they styled Irene Adler. I'm interested to see whether she'll make another appearance. Can't wait for season 3!

  4. Yes yes yes!!!! Sherlock is amazing and I'm so glad I'm not the only one with an obsession with "The Woman". Such a great episode and a wonderful styling of Irene Adler! Oh how I long for that green robe... breathtaking. I'm not ashamed to say i searched high and low for weeks after this episode trying to find an equally seductive gown. Alas... not yet, but one day... x
