regency period/jane austen inspiration


Ahh I am so annoyed because I just did this whole post and then the messed up aussie internet timed out!!! grrr…. anyways I wanted to share one of my current inspirations, regency period dress.  Not only do I love the intricate detailing on the womens clothes but I also think many of the mens clothing peices could be ressurected for women in an interesting & flattering way.  I guess two popular trends I see working with this theme is androgyny & cream/nude/ whites.  Here are some photographs that I am using in my current designs.
