I’m continuing with my idea of what I would have worn if I was born 100 years earlier. Granted, this would have been in my poverty-stricken dreams. In 1880 I would have been 16. In those years I would have been working the marriage circuit….going to balls and such. Sure, I’d love to wear a Worth dress but I’ll try to be a bit more realistic and pick this dress. Just the dress-maker to the Princess of Wales….
Isn’t this amazing! Sigh!
I wonder if the “gold” and “silver” was more intense originally. Has it faded some?
I think it would have been grand to been young in the 1880s.
