Yesterday I got to wear my 1863 Damask Rose dress to The Museum Comes To Life and I LOVED how it turned out!! That is the reason for soooooo many pictures in this post!! The whole outfit made me exceedingly happy and giddy and pretty!! Can't wait for another event to wear it to!
My sweet Mama and I with President Lincoln. I LOVE love love how her dress turned out! We had fun in our sheer dresses!
I would love to have this painted...it reminds me so much of Tissot's paintings of ladies in their dresses!!
We Wear History attends The Museum Comes To Life!
All in all, I was super pleased with this outfit! I felt like a princess!
Ah, you look wonderful! I love your sweet dress and bonnet! :)ReplyDelete
Thank you so much for your lovely comment!!
Gina, this is just too lovely! It's wonderful how you managed to keep your outfit sweet and romantic without having the "Bo Peep from Toy Story" effect ;) I always have this problem wearing pink dresses with a bonnet. I must also say the colour matches your hair perfectly!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much for your lovely compliments! Your comment about Bo Peep made me laugh as there were several people at the event who asked where my staff was! hahahahaha!!! I had not thought about it until they had asked...But thankfully, as you said, it did manage to steer clear from the Bo Peep look!! And I struggled with the color as growing up I was always told that red heads can't wear pink...well, my hair has changed color and gotten darker so Yeah!! I can wear this shade now!!
Well, it's actually Bo Peep that's copying the 1860's look rather than 1860's women copying Bo Peep... So I guess there's nothing to worry about :) And I think that this particular shade of pink is alright for all kinds of red hair ;) I would say it's rather orange that redheads should be aware of, but to be frank I've got no idea, cause I'm not a redhead myself :PDelete
Aaaah....I like your thinking Eleonora!!! Indeed Bo Peep copied the styles of the 1860s!!! Love it!Delete
You look so cute and beautiful!! And I LOVE your bonnet!!! :-)ReplyDelete
Thank you for your wonderful comment!! The way my bonnet turned out made me pretty happy!
You make me sick my friend. And I love that you are so inspirational for it. :-)ReplyDelete
Ha! Jennifer, you make me laugh!! That is the best kind of compliment between costumers isn't it? Thank you my dear!!!Delete
Absolutely lovely! You look so crisp and happy. The colors suit you very well, as does the style. And you have some really fantastic photos (what a lovely background for pictures!) as well! It's such a treasure to look back on these sorts of events.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much for your lovely compliments! I felt just exactly as you said...crisp and happy and I might add well put together...The rose garden at the park is just so lovely and a fantastic place to take pictures!!
Wow! I am speechless. Your outfit is simply splendid! So romantic and delicate, especially the close up of you and the rose. If only one day I could create dresses half as pretty as yours!
Oh Anneliese, you are so sweet! Thank you for your great compliment! I have looked at many of your creations and I love what you do!! I admire those who can take an existing garment and make it into something better and more grand! Your work is inspirational!!!Delete
Such a cute girly dress and you look so adorable wearing it! I love the photos! I'm so glad you left a comment on my blog because now I found yours! :)ReplyDelete
Yeah! I am happy we found eachother! And thank you for your lovely compliment! One of these days, I am going to make a dress like your lovely blue and white stripe confection! Yours is so wonderfully made!!
I have to say I'm really enjoying your blog and looking at all your lovely pictures! I don't have much opportunity to wear my 1860s gowns any more but really wish I did. Granted I did wear one for Halloween this year as part of my Carole Burnett "Curtain Dress".ReplyDelete
