Victorian Tumblr Themes

Hello everyone, I'm just an 18 year old girl who happens to be crazy in Great Britain (literally). This is my loveexplaination for BBC's Call the Midwife. (And all things british).

This is never more true than in the progression of Laura Main’s character’s journey from shy Sister Bernadette to the new doctor’s wife, Shelagh Turner. Laura has gone from wearing a simple nun’s habit and wimple to clothing that must express a woman thrust into a new world of marriage, motherhood and fifties respectability. Her nature is very different from someone like Trixie. Not only must her style reflect her less-experienced journey into the world outside the convent, but must also help mark the huge changes she has had to undergo - much of it a challenge to her.
