Ooooh I love both of these!  The yellow lining and accents on the blue is great, and the whole cut and fit of the white is charming!  I especially love the very subtle puffs on her sleeves!

The Follies and Fashions of our Grandfathers, April 1807.

That’s a lovely pelisse she has!  The asymmetry of the skirts, the fur banding around the sleeve caps, and the high collar are all very interesting features!

Everything about this is crazy!

I love the fur trim on this walking dress, and of course a well-dressed gentleman is the best accessory of all!

There is no such thing as too many giant feathers stuck to your head. 

The Ladies Pocket Magazine, Walking Dress, January 1834.

This color is just stunning, especially paired with the bright gold/yellow.

Le Follet, February 1847. 

What a magnificent blue!  It is especially lovely paired with the lushness of the black fur cloak and the ermine muff!

Gallery of Fashion, Morning Dress, April 1796. 

Holy harlequin muff!  I am DYING for that thing!

Gallerie des Modes, 1778.

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