Lot 48: if i could live in any time period..

May 8, 2015

if i could live in any time period..

what time period would you live in if you could pick?  for me, it would be the 1800s.  in England.  i might be saying this because i am in the middle of watching the paradise, a BBC series following the lives of the employees who live and work at a department store in the 1800s and is on Netflix.  i've become kind of obsessed with it and stayed up until 4 am watching it when i first got into it.  it's really good.  

but no, i have always wanted to live in this time period.  no plumbing, corsets, and everyone dying so young aside, i think my reasoning for wanting to live in this time stems from the clothes, and only if i was rich and had status or something.  but mostly for the clothes.  

i have always loved the gorgeous dresses from this time period.

the way men dressed.

 {the remaining pictures i screenshot from my ipad}
and the HATS.  they look like pastries.

or cakes.  this hat looks like a little cake, don't you think? it makes me kind of hungry.

another thing i love about the dresses are the fabric on the butts.  i know that might sounds weird, but i love the fabric that bubbles over the butt.
you can see it better here.  i love this one.  so gorgeous!! why can't we live in a time where i can wear dresses like that on a regular basis?? why?

what time period would you live in?

and a little note.... for our next you are beautiful post, we are mixing things up a little.  this time, for our next post, we decided to give you a prompt.  on may 14, your prompt is to write about an act of kindness that you did, as that can make you feel beautiful.  at least, it makes me feel beautiful.

  1. I love this time period as well. I wonder all the time what it would be like to live in a different time.

  2. I love the clothes and the way everyone dressed up for everything. So regal!

    I think I would pick the 20s. There were more modern conveniences, but people still dressed up and had some values.


Hearing from you makes my day!!
