Today, Fashionable Reader, I present for you clothing chosen to match one of my foriegn covers.
This is the French pocket paperback issue of Soulless
utilizing the German cover. I started out ambivalent about these covers but they have grown on me. The color pallet is by far the best feature.
Here's what Alexia might actually wear of an evening:
|1875 The Philadelphia Museum of Art|
Here's what a real corset looks like from the time period (OK a little earlier)
|1860s The Victoria & Albert Museum|
Some some lovely stocking to go with:
|1890 Stockings 1890s The Metropolitan Museum of Artblue|
Here's something to wear over it all:
|1885-1889 Evening Cape Emile Pingat, The Metropolitan Museum of Art|
|Muff 1860 Musée Galliera de la Mode de la Ville de Paris|
Here's something for winter visiting hours:
|1880 The Los Angeles County Museum of Art|
And here's something for Lord Akeldama to wear as he receives her call.
|1800 French Court Suit, c. late 18th/early 19th century|
He'd probably be deeply excited that they matched so well.
Some items in my own wardrobe I might wear to match this book:
|Blue dress from J.C. Penny some 7 years ago, $40|
|Glass beaded necklace from Murano, Italy 1996|
|Lapis vintage 1950s necklace, gift|
|Matched earrings I found at a Thrift store|
|A favorite dress of mine, 1940's influenced, good stretch, $40|
|the original German cover|
Retro Rack is also on facebook
where I post additional images and fashion thoughts.
