How lovely to look at . . my fashion crush

There’s one thing you should know about me. I love, love, love 18th and 19th Century fashion. I love it’s detail and structure – I really think it’s stylish and beautiful. I love it also when I can see the influences in modern fashion; it shows that true style never goes away.

How amazing is this embroidery? So delicate and intricate

Oh the ruffles!

This 1700’s mantua was all hand sewn and hand embroidered – now that is art!

Now for modern day style – Embroidery is still delicate and beautiful as ever

I adore capes over the shoulders.
