~DAWN INSPIRED ME ~













































Dawn inspired me to share some images that I have found lately...so you all might enjoy...
Look at the beautiful dresses they wore.
Some of these are actresses...I believe..they must have had an "interesting" like back in those days too.

Such beautiful portraits Rose....and look at how tiny their waists are! Dressing was very complicated back then...but lovely.
Hope you are having a sunny day.

These are so beautiful and elegant, makes you wonder what kind of lives they have led? Thanks for sharing, and thanks for your lovely comments, Pearl

Hi Rose. I know I'm old when I look at these photos and all I can think about is how uncomfortable they had to be in those darn corsets! When I was young we had garter belts and girdles...which I hated. LoL.

I love all these vintage photos.

Yes, their underthings...had to be cumbersome..and uncomfortable.

TALK ABOUT OLD... I had a Great Aunt, who was so proud of her TINY wsist line (back in the very late 1800's )..that she actually had a miscarriage due to the tight undergarment she wore. Poor thing...so vain.
Did anyone notice that one of these lady's is Ethel Barrymore ?

Rose I visited the link about the Estate Sale and you are right I saw lots of stuff I loved. Some of the furniture and china were to die for!
