Magasin des Modes, February 1787. 

Everything about this is crazy! 

Magasin des Modes Nouvelles, November 1787.


Magasin des Modes, March 1787.

I do see how this could be classified as green and PINK, but it’s my blog and I’ll look for any justification I can find to post SLAMMIN’ riding habits, thank you very much!

Kyle, a reader via the Dames a la Mode Facebook Page, requested that I do red and green combinations for Christmas.  Because requests make me very, very happy, I’ll oblige!  It isn’t a terribly common color combination, but I’ll be posting some over the next few days.  Enjoy, and happy holidays!



(Oh yeah!  This is Gallerie des Modes from 1787!)

Magasin des Modes, December 1787. 

The attack of the comically enormous accessories!

Magasin des Modes, June 1787. 

Green dress!  Pink shoes!  Big hat!

Magasin des Modes, October 1787. 

OMG this dress!  This is gorgeous and stunning and unusual.  NEEEEEED.

Magasin des Modes, November 1787. 

I’m sorry I don’t have the description for this one, because it strikes me as a costume of some sort.  Ah well- still adorable!

Magasin des Modes, July 1787. 

Oooh…gorgeous pink and yellow redingote!  The van-dyked collar is a nice touch!

Look at this thing!  Crazy stripes and buttons and skirts!  She looks like a carnival float!

Magasin des Modes, April 1787. 

Oooh!  A Robe a la Turque!  Love these, especially the color over the seam lines in the back!  This actually reminds me a lot of a gown from Gallerie des Modes pink and yellow seems to be a favorite color combination for these gowns, and it is nice to see that this gown remained in high enough fashion to be in fashion plates for at least 7 years!

Well…not everything they wore was flattering.  BUT!  She has a mask in her hand, so that is awesome. 

Magasin des Modes, December 1787. 

LOOK AT THAT HAT!  One of the best hats that has graced my Tumblr, I think!  AND a stripey dress AND pointy trim!  

Magasin des Modes, December 1787. 

Pretty!  Red and yellow are so nice together- why do I always forget that color combination?

Oh wow!  What a dress!
