textbook:

is it so wrong to want the finer things in life? emma bovary didn’t think so, in fact she thought she was entitled to them. emma was a farmer’s daughter who married his doctor, she quickly became bored with marriage and provincial life. emma was sure that by acquiring the finer things, she would be content. she was so consumed by her fascination that she ran up a riotous debt, had two affairs and eventually committed suicide. the saddest part of the whole thing is that emma thought all the fortune, the aristocracy, the opera, the parties and the fancy things would bring her happiness. she failed to realize that all of these things often bring misery and that in the end, nobody is really any better off than anybody else. when all her debts and the schemes of her jerk banker caught up to her, she swallowed some arsenic in typical emma bovary melodramatic fashion. all that said, she still is somehow likable.1: oh, i’m just the farmer’s daughter: dress by tory burch, shoes by derek lam, bag by marc by marc jacobs, hat by erin fetherston2: hopping to paris with my lover: dress and bag by christian dior, hat by marc jacobs, shoes by calvin klein3: i totally can’t afford this dress: dress by oscar de la renta, shoes by christian dior

It may be coincidence, but I suggested this! Yay Emma Bovary!
