Check out these pictures to see modern day Victorian life.
In a Victorian era the attention is paid to detail as with monograms, cameo's, lace, and period pieces such as silver frames and keys. In the later part of the Victorian era the bustle disappears and bodices become the focus with very delicate and feminine accessories such as hats and hair pieces. From this we derive our modern day look so this era is very significant to women.
This is the perfect approach to a sweet sixteen, bridal party, and can make for a very creative bachelorette party, as well! Pinks and Golds add a nice touch of color to the seamlessly black and white affair. Try to keep with the black lace and white satin to keep with the true spirit of the era. Corsets, bustle, lace and femininity were a huge part of this period so stick with it and you will have the perfect Victorian Affair. I found so many sources of inspiration that I had to combine as best I could. Please click on each board to see in more detail.
