Gallerie des Modes, 1779.

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!

Gallery of Fashion, May 1797. 

Hi there, beautiful!  I would push you off that horse if it meant I could get your riding habit!

Le Bon Ton (Published in the Lady’s Magazine), 1849. 

Oh my god that striped dress!  It is so lovely!  Having the ruffles cut on the bias is a nice touch!

Gallerie des Modes, 1778. 

What a delightful little confection of a dress!


Marie-Thérèse Charlotte, daughter of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette

  I would date her clothing to the very late 1790s or up until about 1803.  It’s a beautiful image!

I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of riding habits- they just keep getting better and better!

La Belle Assemblee, March 1807. 

Well!  I think this has gone from the green riding habit blog to the blue riding habit blog!  Who can complain when riding habits are involved?

I love her huuuuuuge train and huuuuuuuge hat!

I LOVE this outfit!  I’m a big fan of little matching jacket and petticoat sets, but the gorgeous trimming really sets it off!

The cat/wolf is scaring me a little bit…

Gorgeous colors and a lovely collar!

Well, it may be impractical for riding, but HOLY CRAP do I love this outfit!

Gallerie des Modes, 1780.

This plate has everything!  A purple and blue dress, a giant hat, and a monkey!

Journal des Dames et des Modes, 1798.

Guess this is a horsey kind of day!   I really adore her spencer- the buckle is a nice element.

Ha!  That horse is tiny!  And note!  Not riding side-saddle and she’s wearing boots!
