hufflethispuffle asked: Hello!!! LOVING all of the wedding posts at the moment! I'm wondering if you have anything on wedding lingerie from the 1940's?
I had trouble finding specifically wedding lingerie from the ’40s, but I’ll post some lingerie from the period :)
thyrza asked: I'd love to see some vintage lingerie. Peignoirs, and so on. It's so hard to identify the years on these sometimes; some extant examples would be nice!
Coming right up!
Floral Diamond Tiara c.1860
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within. ~Titus Maccius Plautus
But I wouldn’t say no to this tiara either.
Thank you all so much. I’m ecstatic that there are so many fans of historical clothing on tumblr!
