"Anne of Green Gables" Fashion Week

I am so excited to host my very first fashion week event! Going with the theme Anne of Green Gables, as it is what got me interested in costuming, which led to me learning to sew clothing, which brings me to starting this blog.  =)

You see, Anne has had an influence in my life since I first saw the movie, Anne of Green Gables with Megan Fellows. My sisters and I would play "Anne" though out childhood, and our teen years. We would be studying for "Queens," reenact many scenes from the movies. "Anne Drowning" was one of our favorites to play in our pool. Gabrielle would be Anne, I would be Diana and Gilbert, whilst Hanne-col (one of my other sisters) would play Ruby. Anyways, on to the details of the event. =)

Who can join this event? Anyone who has a blog and loves Anne. I will also have a group on Flickr for those without a blog. 

What will the event be about? Showcasing our inner Anne girl! Or who ever your favorite character is. There will be different categories to enter in:
  • Modern Anne (Wear what Anne might wear today.) [For ideas look at this post I wrote.]
  • Costumes of Anne (Show off those costumes/dresses/skirts/you name it that were inspired by the movies, or books.)
  •  Crafty Anne (Make something for the event that is inspired by Anne.) 
  • How Anne Has Effected Your Life. (Write a blog post on how Anne has effected your life.)
  • Drama Club - (Write a story or poem, sing a song, create a play or movie, paint/draw a picture about Anne. Go all out and have fun!)
When will the event be held? The second week in July. The dates are: July 11th -17th.

Where will this event be held? Right here on Bramblewood Fashion. ;-)

How can I join? Each day during that week I will have a Mr. Linky at the bottom of my post. You will then link in your post for that day. Easy as pie.


Once the event is over, I will do a big post with links to everyone's posts. Then you may dear readers will vote for your favorites in each category. The winner will receive a banner saying that they were voted best what ever category they were in. Sound good? 


I'm also planning on hosting a giveaway during that week too. If any of you would like to donate something for a giveaway, you can contact me through my profile. As I would love to have more then one giveaway during this event.

Other Fun Stuff: 

I'm planning on having reviews, tutorials, and what ever else I can think of during, and leading up to the big event. So be on the watch out for those.

Event Banners:

For right now, place one of the banners from below on your blog and spread the word about the event! When posting one of my banners please link back to my main page. I will have a button on my sidebar that will link to all posts about the event.

During the event in your post each day, please either include a link to my blog, or a "Anne" banner + link.  Thank you.

Oh, you can click on any of the pictures below and save them to your computer. Then upload them on your blog.

Any Questions? Did I leave anything out, or is anything not clear? 



  1. I am Absoloutely, Wholeheartidly joining in! haha

    In Christ

  2. Yay! I love Anne too... one of my favorite books. :)
    Can't wait!

  3. Sounds amazing! I'll definately be joining in the modern fashion category

  4. Love the idea, however; I will probably have to think about it before joining! I have so much on my plate as is, but will definitely think about it! Love the buttons you created by the way!
    Hope you are having a blessed summer day!
    A sister in Christ,

  5. Greetings,
    oh this looks like so much fun.
    I very much look forward to seeing what everyone shall do. :)
    I grew up watching the Anne movies at my Grandma's...all us girl cousins would watch them, over and over... they are still some of my favorites. I read the books too, but somehow...I still like the movies better. Not sure why.

    Have a very lovely day.

  6. oooookay, Totally and completely excited!!

    Definately in!!!

  7. Hello,

    I am new to your blog, but I love the theme! Just like you, I adore Anne of Green Gables! I am so joining in. :)


  8. Such a cool idea! A little confused about the different categories- do we have to post something in each category for each day, or something from one category each day?
    Looking forward to it!

  9. Kimberly - You can do a post from one category each day. Or if you want, you can do more posts from any category each day. Is this helpful?


  10. Ashley, thanks for clarifying! I don't know if I'll be able to participate, be real busy with 4-h county fair that week, but I'll certainly want to see how others do!

  11. How many times can we enter in each category, Ashley?
    I am SO totally doing this! How EXCITING!! :D Thank you for this opportunity!

    ~Miss Raquel

  12. Raquel, you can enter each category as many times as you want! =) I can't wait to see what you do!


  13. I didn't find Anne until I was in my earily 20's and hapily married. I absolutely love the cloths worn in the movie and like the story line. I must humbly admit that I have never read the books. I enjoyed the aprons they wore for everything and the plad outfit she wore. Have a great day and thanks for the fun week to come. Sincerely, Mommy of two little blessings & so much more!

  14. This sounds like fun! I spread the word at my blog, Beauty from Inside. :)

  15. What a wonderful idea, Ashley! My sister and I "discovered" Anne when we were little girls, and even now that we're "grown up" we still pull out the tapes and watch them from time to time. Everything about those movies was beautiful -- the hairstyles, the clothes, the scenery.

    I don't think I'll have time to participate in this properly, but I think I'll grab one of your beautiful buttons, and I know I'll come back and see how everyone is doing!!

    Love in Christ,

  16. So excited! Thanks for hosting! Hope to join. :)

  17. Ah, sorry I missed this! :-( I just found your site today. I am a HUGE Anne fan. Bummer.
