Hey, saw your last post about not owning the Kyoto “bible”. I own the Fashion: A History from the 18th to 20th Century Taschen books. If you need images of something, I’ve got no problem scanning some pictures. Just letting you know.

Oh wow, that would be lovely! Anytime you feel like scanning, take your pick of any of the costumes and submit it :D I don’t even care what it is, everything in that book is magical!

Ask me anything

I've been interviewed for a blog because of historicalfashion!

This is one of my favourite dresses from the Kyoto Costume Institute collection! I even made an attempt to draw it, but I think it is preferable to show you the original version.
Robe à l’anglaise with black and wine-coloured decoration and fichu at neck, 1790s.
A fichu was a thin draped material which covered the shoulders and neck, sometimes tucked into the stomacher or crossed over the breasts. In the 19th century, after cashmere was brought to Western Europe, the fichu was replaced with large shawls.

I’m so happy you posted this! I don’t have the Kyoto “Bible” yet, and it’s nearly impossible to find photos online. Thank you!

Not really a question, just an etiquette comment. I think that “Laurel Ann, Austenprose” doesn’t really understand the internet. She’s put up pictures, in a public, free-changing environment and expects people to not repost her things? Your crediting h

I wish I could see the rest of your comment! I appreciate your opinion, though, and if possible could you post the rest of it so that I can reply correctly? Thanks :)

I am such a huge fan of your blog; I find it totally inspiring. Your pictures are great (your outfits are muy bonita!) and your writing is so entertaining to read. That said, I was wondering if you would like to be featured on my blog: http://thecaramelkid.blogspot.com/. It features interviews from fashion bloggers like you and I from across the country, even the world, and their inspiration behind their various posts. If you’re interested, you can send me a message via my tumblr: http://scatteredplops.tumblr.com/ask or email: fefesluva@aol.com. From there, I will send a list of a couple of questions for you to answer (they’re so fun) which will get posted on my blog. I would greatly appreciate it.

Dominique

Oh my gosh, wow. I would be so honored to be included! I will definitely be shooting you a message :)

Faye, you have a lovely fashion blog, but it is not appropriate to hot link to images housed on other blogs and lift the authors text. I would appreciate it if you removed the links and quotes. Laurel Ann, Austenprose

I only included the link so that it wouldn’t appear that I was taking credit for your work, and as far as I know it wasn’t hot linking since I uploaded the photos myself, but if it makes you more comfortable I have no problem deleting everything. I’m sorry if I’ve upset you!
