Other things to do today:
Check out this video of the modern art exhibitions being installed at Versailles [Nooks, Towers and Turrets]

Is pre-revolutionary French fashion making a comeback? The new Chanel collection. [Fashion is my Muse]

 Inspiring corners to retire to (nap anyone?) [the paris apartment]

The Gatsby done in Emerald and Gold [The Cherry Blossom Girl]

Have you met Lavinia? An etiquette queen with immature tendencies.   [The Duchess of Devonshire's Gossip Guide]

This is my favorite collection of historically designed corsets.  This is the Marie Corset (1790), I love everything about it. I own the Judith corset (1770) and it is amazing!! [Period Corsets]

Fabulous portrait of the day! As noted by Abby, pink powdered hair & lovely satin ribbon. [Stay-ing Alive: 18th Cent. Fashion Adventures and Ramblings]

Finally, @ArchivistAbby sent me the link to this very amazing piece of jewelry, a Gone With the Wind bracelet.  Can you name which scene by each dress Scarlett wears? It took me a while at first but I have them down now! Love it! [Victoriana]


  1. OMG! Downton Abbey! Last week I happened to catch the last few minutes of Episode 3 (channel flip, then "are those Edwardian dinner gowns?"), so I devoured them online. Episode 4 has me wondering what will happen next and how the war will effect the upstairs and downstairs. Oh, goodness--I don't think I can wait a year for season 2 to come to the states!

  2. @Heidilea I know a year is so far away. At first I was worried I would forget all the details of everyone's story by then! I will have to re-watch them maybe in November!

  3. Love how there is a portrait with pink powder *and* now I must buy reinforcers

  4. love the lady with the pink powdered hair.

  5. Thanks for the rave review of our c. 1790 Marie corset! cheers-Hilary
