The Follies and Fashions of our Grandfathers, June 1807.

What a magnificent cloak!  Yellow on yellow is a great combination and such a striking color!  (Also:  He’s hot)

Gallery of Fashion, December 1798. 

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, July 1807.

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!

The Beau Monde, November 1837. 

Oooh!  I love that green gown.  And that blue cloak is quite a statement piece!

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!

The Follies and Fashions of our Grandfathers, January 1807.

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

Gallerie des Modes, 1778.

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

Journal des Dames et des Modes, 1821. 

What a gorgeous cloak!  It looks so lush and cozy!

Corriere Delle Dame, 1812. 

A big thank you to Julia, a very generous reader who shares scans of her fashion plates with us!  I adore this outfit- from the bonnet to the bands on her sleeves to the sweet little shoes!

Journal des Dames et des Modes, 1806. 

Well guh.  This is to die for!

Fashions of London and Paris, Morning Dresses, March 1811.

Don’t they look cozy on a brisk morning?
