A magnificent silk gown from 1869-1870 at the V Museum. This is from the transformation period between the hoop and the early bustle.
Holy eye gouging beautious colour. *WANT*
Bill Blass, 1990s
Holy god this is rediculously hideous but I WANT TO WEAR IT SO BAD!
Vestido noite, anos 20. É uma peça visualmente atraente, com a combinação do tecido Ombre e o beadwork refinado.
