On Holiday!

I’m off for a few days, giving a workshop on historical fashion at the LERA RWA chapter, eating Mexican food in Santa Fe, and taking yoga lessons in the mountains. Will be back with a regularly scheduled blog next week In the meantime, these are a few fashions I’m talking about this weekend:


Tudor fashions, from early Tudor to Elizabethan frufferies…

Georgian fashions


Regency gowns and accesories (hats, spencers, pelisses, etc)

1880s bustle dresses

I’m also hauling piles of dresses and accessories in the car, so wish me luck!

What’s your favorite fashion era?

My favorite? Easy. The Regency.

I hope you have a fabulous time, Amanda! I can’t think of anyone who could do a better job talking about fashions of any era but you!!

Amanda, I hope you have a great time!

Of course, I like the Regency. I also like many Georgian styles, especially the simpler gowns with unpowdered hair, though come to think of it, wigs and feathers might be fun for dress-up.

You know me, it’s all about the 1780s. *grin* Love the early round gowns and the apron-skirt gowns and the crazy hedgehog hair.

Hope you have a great time giving your workshop.

I’ll take one of each.
Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to attend on of Amanda’s talks.

I think the lovely simplicity of the ladies gowns, plus the sexy, manly, style of the Corinthian set males is exactly why I have always been drawn to Regencies.
