Classic clothes anyone?

Has anyone ever had this urge just to wear those dresses from like the olden days? Or the ones we see on films, as in the really pretty ones, different colors and so classic, from the 1800s or something. Anyone ever had this urge? Or am I just completely crazy..

  • I can't say that I have ever wanted to wear one of those, but you are not alone in wanting to wear period pieces. I love the clothes for the Renaissance and I actually own a dress that my mother made for me to wear when we go to the Renaissance Festival. If you really want to wear a period piece in an everyday sort of setting without feeling "silly" then choose one or two things you really love about an outfit and incorporate it with something a little more modern. I wear a corset over a tank top with jeans and a pair or period boots! It looks great and I feel like I am wearing a little bit of history without looking like a "mead wench"... :)

  • I LOVE the Scarlett O'Hara dresses. And the kind that Rose wore on Titanic. They are beautiful and feminine. I would love for them to come back in style. Hey, the bell-bottoms had a brief come-back. At least the dresses are flattering! lol.

  • LMAO! The other night I was watching the Count of Monte Cristo, it takes place in 1850, and I was telling my friend that I wished I had been born during that era! Because I loved the way they used to you're not the only one!
