story time: my friend and i pretended to be middle school students in order to attend an open house for my crush's old high school (although he's like 50, no joke) and his stepmother is a teacher there, so we asked her questions just to speak to her, i even was disguised, why am i such a creep? lmao
Das 6 of #noneedtothrowthataway#rescued . Mein 1820er Kleid. Eigentlich wollte ich blauen Seidenchiffon darüber legen. Aber der klebte an allem und jedem. Dann lag es 1 Jahr im Schrank. Und dann fiel mir der Tüll in die Hände und es gab ein Happy end 😊#regency#regencydress#lace Die Gürtelschnalle ist ein Original my regencydress. Actually I wanted to take blue chiffon. But that was a bad idea. It was like glue. 😣so the dress was in the board for a long time. Then I found back tulle and I could finished it. The beltbuckle is an original. #beltbuckle
Here are the next ten days of #GeorgianJanuary of @dames_a_la_mode. It's really fun to research this period that I don't know that much about. I really want a book about #GeorgianFashion and history now.
11. Top: detail of a woman's dress and petticoat (robe à la française, Spain, c. 1775). The closeup of the bodice is amazing!
12. Bottom: woman's corset (England, 1750-80), linen twill and baleen. I love seeing the structure that supports those beautiful dresses. It must have been mightly uncomfortable to wear though.
13. Celebration: Court dress (Britain, c. 1750). Those court dresses are the most amazing things! You could have hidden all the seven dwarves underneath it.
14. Mourning: #FashionPlate , half mourning walking dress (early 19th c.). One of the first presentation I did at uni was on the Victorian practices of mourning, that was fun. Curious to see how different it was in Georgian time.
15. Earth: woman's riding habit (Venice, c. 1780). I'm sure those riding dresses must have been muddy after a ride in the park with a beau. Reading much historical romances me?
16. Sky: "Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire, as Cynthia from The Fairie Queen” (1781-2), #MariaCosway .
17. Dark: "Costumes d'ouvrières parisiennes, Cordonnière" (Parisian working women dresses, here shoemaker) by Gatine.
18. Light: regency dress and Indian sash (18th c.) I love those white #Regency dresses paired with colourful scarves.
19. Outside: "A Prince with a Hawk and Ladies Hunting" (India, 1750-75). I wanted to incorporate some #Mughal art this month and this hunting scene with women was perfect.
20. Inside: Banyans (2nd half of the 18th c.). I discovered banyans in reading Gail Carriger's #PoisonOrProtect , and love to imagine men in those colourful robes in their studies.
Today’s #georgianjanuary theme is #outside , which immediately got me thinking of outerwear. This silk pelisse, circa 1820, looks perfect for Southern California’s rather pathetic excuse for winter. Just enough insulation to stave off the 60 degree chill. 😂
