Saturday, er, Sunday blogaround

A friend of mine had her 50th birthday bash yesterday, and an 18th century one to booth. So yesterday I was a bit too busy hunting out my clothes, ironing them and doing some neccesary repairs to blog. I had great fun and really wish I had brought a camera. I hope I can borrow some pictures from friends, because there were some truly beautiful clothes to be seen. Especially a French gown that I think is the most beautifully executed 18th century gown I have ever seen- and I have seen some outstanding examples.

But here are a few links to this weeks most inetresting blog entries.

The Lingerie Addict debunks a few myths about corsets.
Wearing History gives us a nice resource overview of fashion history studies.
Tuppence Ha'penny is havinga a colour theory week. Several great posts about an interesting subject.
An introduction to hairstyles in 1912 from American Duchess.
A stunning 18th century hair as weall as a Frencg gown at An Historical Lady.

Yay for nice links when you're under the weather! I'm so sorry I missed the birthday bash but I always get sick when there's fun to be had. So I too hope for pictures from those who were there :)
