Adam had fun taking these shots of me today, and laughingly christened them the "fun with undies" shots! I hope you enjoy them---We had a ball taking them.
Today is a stunner---the New Hampshire air is clearer than anyplace I have ever been, and the sun was shining all day. It was not too hot and not at all humid---The perfect day for our impromptu 18thc. photo shoot!
We have lots more to share with you in this little series. Enjoy parts one and two that I've posted today~
|Just for fun, here's a photo of me in 'normal clothes'~|
What I am wearing...
...A linen shift, cream silk 'lace clocked' stockings from BURNLEY AND TROWBRIDGE,---(the BEST!), and French embroidered silk garters with a poem on them in French.
I am wearing a hiproll, and over that a heavy white linen underpetticoat. (I would normally put these items over the stays, but wanted you to see the lovely tabs and 18thc. shape.)
My stays are ballet-pink 100% silk damask. (Katherine Adrian and I joke about what she calls her "lumberjack back"!---I too am wide in the upper back, smaller in waist.)
Here is a hint; DON'T lace your stays extremely tightly at the TOP edge; this will produce a most unattractive horizontal 'wrinkle' across the top front of your gown.)
I have black fan-tongue shoes just like my exclusive pearl cream leather ones!
In my hair I have a lovely snood that was made for me. It was woven of white and silver metallic yarn and embellished with pearls~
I made my own low crown straw hat which I embellished with striped silk from my 18thc. sacque gown, silk rosebuds and petals, and ivory embroidered English netting lace~
Someone on PINTEREST pinned a photo of me in my striped silk 18thc. gown, and this blog onto their page under "Old Fashioned Sexy"! How nice! Thank you to that sweetie pie~
