I could never like the willful Scarlett - an early feminist.

soulbrush said...

I wish I could've lived in those times, love the clothes and manners and priorities! LOL

Gemma Wiseman said...

O poor Scarlett who was her own worst enemy when she had such an ego driving her! A little like a spoilt brat with a smile!

andy sewina said...

Phew, my filmic memory is going into overdrive!

Well pointed out!

Grace said...

I remember that movie dress and character...she was one tough lady ~

Magical Mystical Teacher said...

Oh, she did indeed! (But I still find her charming in a cynical sort of way.)

Dare to Charm

Amity said...

I guess it challenges one to go against restrictions...:)

Lovely lines and reminds me of Scarlette O'Hara too!

Judith Westerfield said...

Perfect pick for "charm" Scarlett worked it.

Nanka said...

For me charming lady,Vivian Leigh is remembered, as Scarlett O'Hara through the haiku here!! So many accomplishments to her credit as an actress!!

She was born in Darjeeling, India and spent her early childhood in Bangalore and Ooty in southern India, the region I come from!! So she seems all the more dearer to me!! :)

Perfect piece for Scarlet O'Hara and perfect protagonist for this prompt. Nice!:)

beccagivens said...

Saras said...

Old styles do have a way of comeback into fashion! Well done.
