1880s Winter bustle – pictures

Yesterday I wore my 1880’s dress for the first time, to the Midwinter Fair. It was really nice to wear, and even though it was rainy I had a good time.

Because of said rain, we only took some pictures inside. By this time my curls had started to sag a bit, but I was quite happy with how my hair turned out. Not having bangs, I flipped two curls towards the front and pinned them in place underneath the hat. Looks ridiculous without the hat, but with hat you’d never know!

 

Today it’s been snowing all day. Snow doesn’t happen that much around here, and when it does it usually disappears very quickly again. So I thought I’d take advantage, and dragged my boyfriend outdoors for a couple of minutes to take some more pictures. I didn’t curl my hair this time, too much effort, but the braid this way also works okay. And the dress looks really pretty in the snow!

 

You can’t really see it in these pictures above, but I’m wearing my winter boots with them! Very nicely warm and comfy.

 

 

Some more pictures!

  1. You and your dress are beautiful! I especially love the pictures your boyfriend took out in the snow, you’re right that the dress looks super pretty in the snow!! What a lovely winter dress. πŸ™‚ And this probably sounds silly, but you wearing that dress outside with the snow all around you, especially in the picture where you’re hiking the dress up a bit to show us your boots, reminds me of Jo from Little Women. πŸ™‚

    Well done and congratulations on the beautiful dress!
