Gallerie des Modes, 1778. 

(Deepest apologies for my absence, readers!  I started a new job this week and have been working like a fool, so my blogging time has been nil.  In addition, my internet at home is being weird so it’s made keeping things updated challenging.  I’m trying!)

There is a lot of look here, but how sweet are those little shoes peeking out?

It is a blustery, cold morning here in Virginia and an outfit like this would be most welcome today!

Sorry for the long absence, readers!  I was in North Carolina for a week and now my parents are visiting, so I’ve been away from the computer.  Normal posting will resume on Monday!

I’ve posted this lovely riding habit before, by when the request for green and red was made, this was the plate that popped into my head, so I had to post it again!  Merry Christmas, you beauty!

Such delightful little confections of toppers!  I can’t decide my favorite, but this second I’m leaning towards the cap on the top left.

LOL!  I love the girl on the bottom left with the teeny hat pinned to her giant hairstyle!

What a gown!  Gorgeous color, trimmed to the teeth in fur!  She’s a real stunner.
