A while ago (but I will not say how long ago, so I don't want to reveal how behind I am in posting), we went to the an old mansion to tour. As me being so very much into those things, I really loved it! It truly was a mansion with 40 rooms - even an art gallery! It would have been nice to see the house full of furniture and maybe even people dressed and acting like they lived and worked there! But I can see why they wanted to use furniture that was original to the house. It was still very educational and fun! Sadly, flash photography was prohibited, but a couple pictures turned out.
I also found this neat website: www.ladiesemporium.com They sell late 1800's fashions newly made, and anything you want - from corsets and swimsuits, to dresses and boots. Take a look at the swimsuits, I actually think they are cute and wouldn't mind wearing one! Does anyone have any other good places to buy old-fashioned clothes? Ebay is also a good place to look.
Thank you for reading! Until next time,
