Color in 1919

One of the dresses on display for the Costume Museum’s homage to the 1919 strike is this little number!  Super cute!

I don’t know what job this striker would have had but she would have been stylin’!  May be she was upper class with a bent towards helping the down trodden.

I adore the flower pattern and the necklace chosen to accent it is pretty nice too!

I don’t know if the hat is a set with the dress but it is a perfect pairing!

The color scheme reminds me of these photos taken over my house a few days ago.  The plan is to move in the next year or two and I shall miss this little lake out my kitchen window!

Now that he is named, he has become my “outdoor pet”.

Stay tuned for my next post!  Victorian at Heart will be starting its costume season today!  It is the perfect day for it I think!  Sunny but not too hot!  Yeah!

    Oooh that dress is gorgeous! I need more pink in my historical wardrobe. I wouldn’t think that the hat would actually go with the dress. With its short sleeves, low neck, and fancy fabrics, I’d guess that its an evening dress of some sort, which wouldn’t be worn with a hat. The hat is super cute regardless!
