We all love some glaring direlictions from the path of delicacy and propriety now and again, don’t we.
I’ve been reading a lot of eighteenth and nineteenth-century periodicals for my dissertation research, so I thought I would share a little section with you from one of England’s early fashion magazines, The Ladies’ Monthly Museum. Shocking riding wear, powdered locks, quilted petticoats, flirtatious fan work and patches (you might remember, I spoke of those here) – I don’t know about you, but this is the kind of magazine I would reach for at the newsstand. Enjoy!
The eighteenth century styles are so elegant and beautiful! Have a great week!
