October: Victorian Fashion and You

Libba says, "New dress code: You have to rock a piece of Victorian clothing. What do you wear and how do you wear it? Describe your ensemble. Make it work, people!"

I will have a frilly parasol for my delicate skin, a dress that shows my shoulders with a giant, petticoated skirt and--of course--a large hat covered in flowers. I might also want to carry a nosegay of roses, just for kicks.

Of course, if I'm just incorporating one piece into my modern day, I'll carry the nosegay of roses with skinny jeans and one of my large array of faded gray t-shirts.

I welcome the corset and petticoat. Please make my dress purple - though I prefer shorter dresses to those which are ankle-length, so I'd have to customize it a bit. :)

I'd wear a long skirt and show absolutely NO SKIN! (well maybe a little ;)
I would also wear a nice hat of some kind and a necklace (pearls, a diamond or sapphire or ruby or some kind of jewel necklace). And I would try and have my ears piecred (not sure if that was done back in the day!)

I would be doing some serious gender bending: Riding breeches, frock coat, and a peach satin corset over a white-linen-and-lace bed shirt. And of course, the most ridiculous hat adorned with serious plumage. And a monocle. Gotta rock the monocle.

I'd sport a pair of gloves long enough to reach my upper arms!

And a hat with feathers. With Converse.

I want a top hat. It would make me look tall.
