Dot, a woman should dress first and foremost for her own pleasure. Having grown up in second flannels, there is nothing quite so divine as the feel of silk underwear, the touch of soft fox, the slither of a satin skirt. If these things happen to appeal to men, well… really that’s a side issue.
—Phryne Fisher from Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries (via veela-valoom)
This is Phryne Fisher. She’s a daring forty-something woman living in Australia during the 1920s with enough money to live it up and a wardrobe that’ll make you cry.
She decides she’s going to become a private detective, so she does. She has a pearl handled pistol in her handbag and a dagger in her garter.
Her adventures sometimes require undercover work. Such as circus performer.
And if she’s not in an adorable hat, she has a sparkly headband. Of course.
And every now and then her lesbian bestie visits in the greatest tweeds and brogues.
Did I mention the clothes?
She prefers younger men
But you’ll totally ship these two.
She knows how to fly planes,
and teaches young girls self defense on top of table manners.
But these two are the cutest most innocent couple you’ll ever see. Seriously cute.
There’s so much more, but you’ll just have to watch it. The first season is on Netflix streaming in the U.S. so I hope you enjoy this kick-ass lady. She’s seriously cool.
when i find myself in times of trouble
the 12th doctor comes to me
speaking words of wisdom
