Day Dress from Europe, 1857
The tartan pattern of this dress might suggest a Scottish origin, but the use of tartan in dressmaking was widespread during the Victorian era. Queen Victoria herself had a particular love for the romanticism of the Scottish Highlands, and under her influence, the use of tartan became widespread. She even designed her own pattern, the Victorian tartan, which is still used as a royal tartan!

Corset by Madam Griswold
As wearing a corset was essential in Victorian times, understandably there was a great deal of innovation and invention as to the design of these undergarments. Many were patented, designed for extra comfort, for maternity wear or even wearing in the summer heat. This is one of Madam Griswold’s "Patent Skirt-Supporting Corsets" designed to be worn with the bulky bustles of the 1870s.
Makeup is FUN, creative, colorful, and an artistic form of expression.
Women and men can wear it for whatever reason they want…and most of the time, it’s NOT because of the social demands for beauty or to simply “impress” people. And even if those were the reasons, LAY OFF.
I am all right with this ad campaign. It uses simple text that emphasizes that individual women have their own individual reasons for wearing makeup as opposed to just putting some airbrushed celebrity at the forefront and making people feel ugly.
This ad campaign does get to the point as to why I wear and love makeup: because I want to. I wear makeup because I think it’s pretty, interesting, versatile, dynamic, and it makes me feel like I want to feel. I don’t need to wear makeup. I do not wear makeup for anyone other than myself. Makeup is about joy and becoming whomever you are!

These are the four of the earliest-born people ever to be photographed. All were born in the late 1740s and lived into their 90s and 100s, long enough to experience the dawn of photography.
The three men in the photo all served in the American Revolutionary War (1775-1783), fighting for independence against Great Britain, and would have seen George Washington signed in as first president of the United States in 1789. I find it fascinating to think what they saw through their eyes. They were in their 40s and 50s when Mozart and Beethoven became contemporary composers!
