"avoir la mode"! I wonder if they were comfortable wearing that! LOLCool picture!Léia
Superb and very interesting, but...I'm happy with our nowadays style:)Have a nice evening!
Wow. I like the headdress on the lady in the picture on the right - it's shaped like a heart!!!
I can't help but wonder if the ladies (and men) of the time thought these styles were attractive. They no longer seem to represent our cultural ideal of feminine beauty! :-)You women sure have to go through a lot of "stress" to be all that you can be. It's really not fair, it would seem...
Wow, I'm glad that's not fashionable any more. Great find!
I have worn a coiffe before, but it was a simpler variety. I think those ladies in the portraits just don't look very happy. I'm sure it had nothing to do with the coiffes though! :)
I hate to think of how long ago it was when I was in Saint Malo. You wore one of these? Tell your tale, friend . . .Good luck with the Jayhawks (until they run up against one of my teams). Given where I worked, I have many Jayhawk and Longhorn fans among my friends. Regina from the KC DP blog is also a Jayhawk.
Very interesting heart find. :)
Those busts are way too cool!
Thanks for visiting. I love hearing from you.
