Fashion History

My great aunt recently gave me an old fashion history book about fashion in 1790-1822 so I had a look through it. History always amazes me, and how things have changed so much. This picture caught my attention because I started to think about what it would be like if we all wore these dresses today. It's such a beautiful dress but must weigh a ton! I now have a funny image of people just popping into Sainsburys wearing these massive dresses.

If I had to pick an era to live in, it would have to be 1920s. I've always wanted to live in that era just for a day or week, it's so elegant. I would love to sing in a small smokey club, with a short hair cut and red lipstick. A bit like Chicago, that would be awesome!
