I’ve always been a sucker for the silky, slinky evening gowns of the 1930s. So for this Fashion Face Off, I thought it would be great to showcase some lovely satin 1930s-style gowns. Cecilia from Atonement, Pamela from Dancing on the Edge, and Anne from Glorious 39 all don shining examples of this stunning type of gown. I thought I’d also provide some vintage examples for reference:
Greetings! I recently came up with a new feature I wanted to add to this blog that I’m hoping to make a weekly recurrence. I actually got the idea with the help of my sister (thanks, sis!). Basically, I’m going to try and do a “Who Wore It Better?” type post where I’ll showcase two costumes from two different period dramas that are somewhat similar to each other, whether in time period, color, and/or overall style. Sometimes the costumes will even be exactly the same. Period dramas have been known to recycle costumes after all. Then, I’ll ask you which person you think wore the look better.
I think this will be a fun and fast way to post a little more regularly while still doing my “bigger” fashion posts. I’m actually working on one as I type this, so stay tuned!
And now, my very first Fashion Face Off!
I’ve decided to do a quick TGIF post to help kick-start the weekend. Woot! Woot! The following is a series of period drama-related tag questions that you can answer either in the comments or on your own blog. I got these questions from the always lovely Old-Fashioned Charm blog.
I’ve a confession to make. I’m addicted to those silly, non-scientific Buzzfeed and Playbuzz quizzes. It’s a guilty pleasure of mine that’s made even more pleasurable when I happen upon one that’s related to period dramas. With that in mind, I thought I’d take a brief break from period drama fashion to do a fun post on a bunch of period drama-related quizzes.
