I have been entranced by the figure of the late 19th to early 20th century Gibson Girl since I first spied a Charles Dana Gibson illustration while doing my degrees in Victorian Literature and Culture. Since I've got a couple of Edwardian pieces that I will be going up in the shop shortly, I thought I would practise my best S-bend (sans corsette) and Gibson Girl gaze in the garden today. In the end, while it was so fun to try to channel the likes of Camille Clifford or Gabrielle Ray, there is just no question that style-wise, I'm a 30s girl through and through (in case you hadn't noticed). It's such fun to try on clothing from other decades, though. One really is reminded of how the different styles of clothing require totally different postures and carriage. Anywhoo, if you are interested in the Edwardian vintage blouse or dress in the photos, don't hesitate to convo via Adeline's Attic Vintage for more info or to reserve!
