Good Monday to you all! I hope you had a marvelous weekend!!
This past Saturday, We Wear History did a fashion show for the Laura Ingalls Wilder Birthday Celebration at the Boise Public Library. (Photos of that fashion show will be posted in my next blog entry...the ladies looked fabulous!!!) Because we wore dresses that were representations of the fashion that was worn during Laura's lifetime, a dress from the "7th" year in the decade was worn (Laura was born in 1867 and died in 1957). I chose to wear my 1930s Fall Suit that I made clear back in November of 2015! The only time I have worn it outside my house was to attend a friend's wedding, but didn't wear the hat, gloves or wear 1930s make-up, so this was its first "official" wearing and I am not 100% sure that it makes me abundantly happy...like my Victorian-1920s dresses make me happy.
Perhaps it has to do with the fact that I'm used to being really trussed up when I wear my Victorian-1920s outfits with a corset and all, but the wearing of this 1930s fashion just didn't look right to me. It could have something to do with the fact that the silhouette of this era was a long rectangle as well, something I am just not used to. Or maybe it was the weird fit of the jacket, I just don't know. I think I am going to have to make a couple more 30s era outfits just to make sure! Oh, and I do need make some appropriate underthings, like whatever they used for the corset...corselette? girdle? And of course that era's brassiere. Oh darn. I have to make underwear? I'm so upset! aaaaahahahahaha!!!
Anyway, my sweet Colton was our photographer and he, as always, did a marvelous job! It's also fun I think, that the pictures look like they were taken in the fall! Which works perfectly with the outfit!!
A bit of cheek to end with!
Okey dokey, that's all for this week! Next entry will be the fashion show and the beautiful models that I had the pleasure of working with!!
Be Blessed my friends!!
