Mode du Jour

for cinematic wardrobes in the post* a few days ago, very few - there is always an exception ;) - went too far back, preferring the 20th and 21st centuries over period dramas, etc. i wonder why...

so few romanticizing a bustle?

blame it on a lack of imagination, or the galilean invariance of sorts, sartorially-speaking, but i can't imagine a more preferable time to get dressed than right now.

if you could time travel, what decade, or century, would you seek out, just for the fashion?

*loved the answers to that post!

I would rock a Westwood bustle any day!

I wouldn't mind spending a few days in the court of Marie Antoinette.

I'm afraid I'm going to have to sound like a broken 78 again.

Anything '20s, '30s, or '40s. The women's bias-cut dresses, the hair, the jewelry, oh, blimey. I'm in heaven.

20s here as well!

If I was a guy, The Victorian Era.
Otherwise, the 70s. Less Farrah and more Penelope Cruz in Blow.

in order
1. the 40s (loved the shoes)
2. the 60s (fancy paris, not hippie craze)
3. the 20s (gotta love a flapper gown)

There are so many: forties for the tailoring, 18th century for the corsetry, mid-19th century prairie (cuz it seems fun), fifties for the bullet bras, 70s for London-chic pantsuits.

you've inspired me! as soon as i finish going through all my cinematic couture pictures they will appear on either CC or PPP.

-h, i will definitely look out for that!

wardrobe-wise, i think i'm a modern girl, who would like retro hair. (but i will have to give it some more though.)

Count me in as one of the unimaginative - much as I swoon over the 20s and 40s, I very much prefer "right now".

Besides, it seems to me that one can dress like a 40s woman if she wants to do so now - I don't contemporary norms restricts anyone from doing so, compared to the past.

now. right now.

lord, i don't know if you know men's fashion in the past, but it's essentially suits, cut one of four ways. suh-nor.
