Far too often, this blog is SERIOUS, so today is just for FUN. I have an eclectic collection of period illustrations, and I'll be sharing some of my all-time faves.
|The "quintessential" Regency Evening Get-Together. Cards and Conversation.|
|The female waistline shows that this illustration is actually post-Regency (but pre-Victorian) and I love it because it is indicative of a wonderful spirit of worship which existed among the faithful during even the hedonistic Regency.|
|A Regency Girls' Day Out?|
|I use the above as the background of my Twitter profile--gotta love a great bonnet!|
|This exquisite outfit fascinates me. The shawl is a work of art in itself.|
|This woman's hat looks suspiciously like a mobcap. I love it's exuberance of lace. This portrait, in fact, was the model I used to imagine the housekeeper for Mr. Mornay's residence in The House in Grosvenor Square.|
|Quintessential Early Regency Style--feminine and beautiful|
|I have a weakness for illustrations with mothers and children. I'll do a post someday with this theme. (Btw, look how nicely the serving-man is dressed!)|
|Lord Grantham. A Regency hunk. :)!|
|A many-caped greatcoat. (I love to put one of these on any of my heroes when they're at the whip, that is, driving an equipage.)|
|Men's Fashions 1810|
