Only to excess! My favourite period is Victorian. Most of my going out wardrobe consists of corsets, bustles, long skirts, gloves, hats, and parasols and boots. I dabble in Edwardian as well....long velvet gowns, free flowing as opposed to the constriction of the victorian era. I've got a few early 1900 pieces as well. I draw the line at the 1930's.
Every year my boyfriend and I go to Cape May's Victorian week festivities. Aside from those who own property or participate in the features, I seem to be the only one in complete attire. It does help with getting the best tables in the restaurants, however.
I believe I was never meant to be living in this century.
How can we sleep while our beds are burning???
