15 Jane Austen Accessories You Need To Own Right Now
If you’re a Janeite, you probably understand that sometimes it’s not enough just to own (several) copies of all Jane Austen’s novels. Sometimes, you need to take it to the next level. Why just read about the worlds of Elizabeth Bennet and Emma Woodhouse when you can surround yourself with so many Jane Austen accessories that it feels as if you’re actually living the story?
Of course, I’m not talking about the frustrating parts of the stories (and the time period) where women had few options and property passed only to men and people married just for money, etc. etc. I’m talking, of course, about the wonderful parts of the books. The balls! The dancing! The clever and cutting quotes from Jane Austen as she both observed and criticized her surroundings! Who wouldn’t want to pick up some accessories that can remind you of all the best bits of Jane Austen’s novels?
Since you can’t actually jump into the novels and meet all your favorite characters while taking a long walk in the gardens (when is Austenland going to become a real place?!), the next best option is to surround yourself with the words and advice of Austen herself, printed and painted on your favorite accessories.

They say you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but this cover happens to make a perfectly beautiful book clutch.

Then again, let's be real — you're probably going to be storing books in your purse anyway.
