Fashions of London and Paris, Head Dresses, October 1805.
Proof that basic black doesn’t have to be boring! My favorite is actually the little tiara on the bottom right!
The Follies and Fashions of our Grandfathers, May 1807.
Oh, how I wish this was a higher quality scan! That said, you can still see the excellent Greek Key-like trim on the gown, and it is yellow and grey- my current color obsession!
La Belle Assemblee, Evening Dress, December 1810.
This is definitely before La Belle found their footing with illustrations, but look at the gorgeous detail on that gown! The deep lace around the hem is lovely.

What an unusual and charming outfit. Doesn’t she look comfortable?
La Belle Assemblee, Carriage Costume, November 1816.
This is an all around unusual outfit, but I really like how much is going on. A particularly lovely bonnet…
Le Follet, February 1845.
Ackermann’s Repository, Walking Dress, January 1811.
This is so cozy and charming! I love the fur trim and her wonderful hat!
La Belle Assemblee, Walking Dress, November 1824.
This is so lovely and intricate!
Columbian Magazine, January 1845.
Oh I love the plaid one! The bias-cut panel on the bottom is great! That green cloak is pretty gorgeous, too!
Gallery of Fashion, April 1797.
Two lovely bonnets, and look at her shoes.
Lady’s Pocket Magazine, Walking Dress, January 1834.
The claret color with the grey fur is a gorgeous combination! It almost distracts me from those ridiculous sleeves…almost. I do like the little bows at the base of the sleeve puffs, though!
Journal des Dames et des Modes, 1822.
I’m sorry this isn’t the best image, but I just love how luscious and rich the gown is!
Ackermann’s Repository, March 1809.
What a hat!
Journal des Luxus, 1791.
Is he wearing a triple breasted waistcoat?! I’m in love with a drawing…
