Getting Dressed in the year 1860

I can imagine her man kept repeatedly glancing at his watch, 
whilst waiting impatiently for her!
errr...I guess nothing much has changed, huh?
I should email these pics to my man ~whah!

The red dress in the post before is also very *voluminös*!

Men HAVE to WAIT for their pretty women!

Wow! It's not like her man can even get anywhere close to her in that get up... For a bit I thought she was morphing into a papasan chair.

Wow...looking at these photos, I feel like such a slacker! ;) We do have it so much easier that the women who came before us. There's really no excuse not to make an effort to look good in this day and age. It would be nothing compared to what these women went through.

Gosh that is such a chore but I can't help but still wish I lived in that era sometimes!

Kwana said...

For real. What about getting undressed? Yikes.

Sam said...

Goodness me! I can't imagine how you would get around in that skirt! I'm quite glad we don't wear that sort of thing these days...
