Want to play a rousing game of spot that outfit in How to Marry a Werewolf, Fashionable Reader?
I feature a number of fashionable items from the historical record in this one. It was fun for me to research and to write.
|Walking suit, American, circa 1890-95. Wool, silk taffeta.
|1890 ca. Boater Hat English Straw, silk, by Lincoln Bennett and Company’s Hats.
|Raudnitz & Co. evening dress, 1897
From the Musee Galliera
|Punch 1895 – History of the bicycle
Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Rouff ca. 1897 | French
Brooklyn Museum Costume Collection at The Metropolitan Museum of Art
I love this last one because it so perfectly goes with How to Marry a Werewolf‘s cover art.
