Les Modes from 1902

Once again I am watching Top Gear while photoshopping old images from Les Modes that I found in the Bibliothèque Nationale de France.  It’s all about fast cars and beautiful clothes that I can’t own.

But a girl can dream…

Susanna’s note: I love the above dress. 

Susanna’s note: I want that bracelet!

I’m not sure the following dress is from 1902, but I found it with the above images and it’s so gorgeous that I had to include it.


Basking in Beautiful French Fashion from 1908

I was a good girl for nine full days and wrote blog posts chocked full of information. As a reward to myself and because Thursday is my favorite day of the week, I’m posting historic fashion eye candy from “Les Modes” in 1908.   And I’m not including any pesky historical information to get in the way of the visuals.


That’s all from me this week. If I get motivated over the weekend, I might try to transcribe more of The London Adviser and Guide. But, I feel a bad case of spring fever coming on. I ache to stretch out on a deck chair, sip mojitos, listen to Astrud Gilberto, and look at all the pretty flowers.
