Right or wrong, I am in LOVE with fashion and various styles through the decades. There are just so many different kinds, but one style remains constant and one that I L-O-V-E and that is anything that is romantic and flirty and feminine.
To the left you see a beautiful woman with a soft romantic dress and parasol (to protect her skin from sun!) This Victorian style has always delighted me!! Oh how I wish we could dress like this (well.. sometimes.. ;-) ) It really does inspire me.
There are a couple of "periods" of time that I just love the fashion, the enthusiasm, just the basic culture: The Victorian Age, Rococo & Neoclassical Style, the 1920s and the 1940s. All of these fascinate me, and I always love looking at pictures of the clothes, the decor in their homes, the hair styles.. anything from these time periods. I thought today I would share with you a few pictures (that way if you are not familiar with the styles, you can see for yourself!)
Reminds me of the old black and while Hollywood movies and look! I LOVE the hair of this time period. I love the way the women wore bold lipstick and had porcelain skin. They carried a since of confidence about them and the fedoras were too sassy! These were working women, and celebrating their men coming home from war - but the spirit and style was amazing!!
SO that's my historical fashion loves. What about you? What decade or historical time period are you drawn to?
PS - I DO love the ancient greeks also!
