SS&D Surprise Party: What To Wear in Egypt

Rachel of Hello, Chelly and I have teamed up to bring you a full week of posts to celebrate the release of Strange & Ever After, the third and final book in Susan Dennard's amazing Something Strange and Deadly series. Come and join us in the celebration!

In Something Strange and Deadly, the stage was set in Philadelphia. In A Darkness Strange and Lovely, our beloved characters found themselves in Paris. And for Strange and Ever After, they head to Egypt for the final part of their journey. Last year, I created a post about Philadelphia, while Rachel wrote one about Paris. This year, we're teaming up to bring you A Day in Egypt! Rachel's in charge of planning a modern day date, while I get the honor of dressing all the main characters.

Now, each of the characters I'm including - Eleanor, Daniel, Joseph, Jie & Oliver - has a very distinct personality. I did my best to make sure that their clothes matched their characters, all while making sure to keep the warm, dry weather in Egypt in mind.

Eleanor's Look

Daniel's Look

Joseph's Look

Jie's Look
Top || Pants || Boots || Backpack

Oliver's Look
Oliver's Look: Tank || Shirt || Shorts || Shoes

So, this is how I'd dress all of my favorites if they were in modern-day Egypt!


  1. I can't get over how perfect these outfits are!! They really capture each character's personality. (Also, I want Eleanor's dress so badly.)

  2. Yes, oh my goodness, these outfits are soooo perfect!!! Awesome job!

  3. I love these outfit choices! Eleanor's dress reminds me of the one from the cover- love Jie's look as well, and how Joseph's is classic. Great picks!

  4. So creative and I love all the outfits! I haven't read the series yet but your amazing week of posts is making me feel like I need to bump it to the top of my TBR pile!
