Lust Objects ~ Black & White

The scent of Fall is in the air, Fashionable Reader. At least as far as the runways are concerned. I've been feeling the black and white as a result.





















 1940 pinupgirl; 1927 You Rang, M'lord?

 1960  The Victoria & Albert Museum  The heels were made by Wedgewood.

 1912-1913  Jean-Philippe Worth, Nasjonalmuseet for Kunst, Arketektur og Design 


 Character Corner


And now for the main character in the upcoming Parasol Protectorate Abroad series I give you several dresses. Prudence is fond of black & white.

For Prudence daytime:

1897-1898  The Metropolitan Museum of Art

For Prudence evening:

1890 Evening Dress  Drécoll  The Metropolitan Museum of Art

And the fan to go with:

Fan  1925  The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Prudence reception gown:





 1890 Reception Dress (Bodice and Skirt), c.1890 Brocaded silk satin, cotton

And something for Primrose, who is a little more bold in her taste.

1890s Evening Dress  Jacques Doucet The Mint Museum


Retro Rack is also on facebook where I post additional images and fashion thoughts.

  1. Primrose obviously shares her mothers fashion style! (lets hope it doesnt extend to hats.)
