Fashion Report: Regency Era

Time flies so fast. I nearly forgot about this post today again! This week's post is about the Regency Era.
This gown is an example of the styles worn during this time period. The typical gown worn by women of this time period was high waisted and usually low cut as well. The sleeves were also usually long and the hemline, of course, came down to the floor.
For those of you who are familiar with Jane Austen's book Pride and Prejudice, this picture is from the movie Pride and Prejudice. From left to right are Jane, Kitty, and Elizabeth Bennet.

Notice in this picture how the women also wore little jackets and bonnets. The more flowery and lacey the bonnet, the better!

I hope you girlz and guyz enjoyed this post! Comment and let me know if you like having pictures! Thanks!
