Author and Reader Fashion Inspiration

One of the challenges of writing historical romance is describing the fashions that our characters wear.  I was extremely lucky to come across a blog on Tumblr entitled, “Old Rags.”  The photo below is an evening gown circa 1890.  Looking at these pictures of period clothing may take hours, but it’s well worth it if you love period romance.  I hope you enjoy!

  1. The dress is absolutely gorgeous! Love it! I'm not sure a written description could do it justice. 🙂 I like your new blog (found you from your post on Goodreads) and look forward to your posts. I tweeted this as well!
