While Etiquette & Espionage
is officially not yet out, I was pleased to debut the cover of Curtsies & Conspiracies in my author blog today
! As I have done for Etiquette & Espionage
I thought I would do some fashion items that seems to match the book cover. Here we go!
First let's start off with things from the past.
Something for Sophronia's mother, perhaps?
|1842 The Metropolitan Museum of Art|
And an amazing broach to go with it:
|1845 Doyle Auctions|
Something for Sophronia herself to wear:
|1850-1852 Evening Dress The Metropolitan Museum of Art|
Something for Alexia to wear in the Parasol Protectorate books.
|1874 Afternoon Dress The Metropolitan Museum of Art|
And something for underneath.
|1884 The Chicago History Museum|
Something for Prudence to wear in the Parasol Protectorate Abroad books.
|1900s The Goldstein Museum of Design|
And to carry.
|Fan 1900 The Philadelphia Museum of Art|
And how about some pretty sparkles?
