you say i'm crazy, i got your crazy

One of my favorite characters on television was Cassie Ainsworth, played by Hannah Murray on Skins. She was an anorexic kook with many issues, including drug abuse and suicidal tendencies. She reminds me a bit of Hamlet's Ophelia - a beautiful vulnerable blonde who, when faced with heartbreak, wants to drown themselves in the Thames. Well Cassie's version of drowning herself is with pills and alcohol, but still just as dramatic as Shakespeare.

Her fashion is so much fun - a mixture of glamorous pieces mixed in with cheap choices. She dresses sort of like a little girl in bobby socks, long skirts with crinoline, lace or silk blouses, mary janes, and sparkles and bows galore!
