This time, I wore the dress alone with just a silk sash wrapped around my waist and shoulders in a way that is similar to these illustrations. I've read that this revolutionary fad was known as croisures à la victime, making a symbolic "x-marks the spot" on a woman's back.
I'm not sure if this is true or just a fashion myth, but here's an interesting webpage about it.
I also wore my new-and-improved paisley shawl. After I wore it last month, I decided to buy a second shawl that was the same as the first and sew them together to make one super-long shawl, which is much more appropriate for this era. I'm so much happier with it now, and it might be my new favorite accessory ever. I also wore my turban from the first wearing of this dress, but I left off the wheat spray so I wouldn't be as likely to knock things over with my crazy headwear in the booths while shopping.
I didn't buy very much this time at the show, but I had fun hanging out with some friends, lusting over the gorgeous fur muffs and seeing all the antique dresses. And as always, it was wonderful to have an excuse to dress up. Here are a few more pictures of my dress just for the heck of it.
