Named for Queen Victoria- the Victorian era in fashion and every day life was full of lace and ruffles, high button shoes, big hats, heavy carved furniture. Even the houses were lacey! Love this photo by Betsy Leacock of Tucson, Arizona. http://www.etsy.com/listing/64622133/8-x-10-victorian-house-vintage-photo-by?ref=sr_list_2&sref=&ga_search_submit=Search&ga_search_query=victorian+house+photo&ga_order=most_relevant&ga_ship_to=ZZ&ga_view_type=list&ga_search_type=vintage&ga_facet=vintage
Something about that era always seems to spell romance. Although too much can be, well too much. The great thing about vintage dressing is that you can combine the old with the new for a great look. Here’s a Victorian petticoat on www.ctmercantile.com which would be smashing with cowboy boots and a cute jacket, or beautiful as part of an all white ensemble.
