Chilly Weather Fashions of Old

I love to look at old fashion plates, don't you? Women used to have outfits for every occasion, from home life to paying every social visit, to church, and every outdoor activity. Nowadays, we seem to wear our jeans just about anywhere, and for nearly all occasions. As dress code hardly does matter anymore, it's fun to look back and see what women were wearing about a hundred years or more ago.
Our set today is all about that fun. I can't help admiring anyone whose pleasure it was to look fashionably warm when walking her charmer of a little dog. :)
Anyway, we hope this holiday weekend will warm you from head to toe with the light of all things Thanksgiving.
Happy Holiday Creativity, all!

The green one is gorgeous. A real Christmas cracker! i love the animated dog!

I'd dress like this, too, if I had a lady's maid...

Rhissanna: Looks like you and I are on the same wavelength in more ways than one--you've chosen my fave of the 4! Isn't she a stunner? I think this would make a nice tableau for under a tree....
