Incroyables et Merveilleuses de 1814

The third and final installment of Incroyables et Merveilleuses de 1814 is up on my blog now.   I’ll be posting the rest of the fashion plates on tumblr over the last few days.

I’ve started selling paper millinery flowers in my Etsy shop.  I’ve been doing a lot of research on flowers in 18th and 19th century millinery and am so captivated by the lovely way they used flowers and leaves.  I’ll post some inspiration images over the next few days. 

I hope you’ll check out my shop for paper flowers and historic ribbons (we can’t forget the ribbons!)

Le Bon Ton (Published in the Lady’s Magazine), 1845. 

Love those bold colors and the pairing of the contrasting bonnets.

I almost didn’t post this one because the quality is so low, but a few elements were irresistable:  the bright colors, “the coat trimmed all round with a border of small brown roses,” and the spats on his shoes- SWOON!
