I hope you all had a wonderful holiday! This year, we were treated to a very rare white Christmas in Texas, and my whole family had so much fun frolicking in the snow.
Since I didn't get a lot of good posed pictures of my new redingote last month, I decided to make use of the pretty winter backdrop today and snapped a few more pics at the park. It was so much fun wearing this outfit in cold weather. I stayed nice and warm in my gown, and the colors seem to go so perfectly with the snow and bare trees. I could have kept going for hours, but my son decided that more snowball fights were in order, so I changed back into my street clothes and returned to 21st century mom-mode. Unfortunately, my camera doesn't like cold weather and all of my pictures are a bit out of focus and hazy, but we're going to call that blurriness "artsy" and go with that. ;) But anyway, it was a fun little excursion and a perfect Christmas gift from mother nature for a costume nerd like myself.

Plano Heritage Farmstead's holiday celebration - Lanternlight. The theme for this event is usually turn-of-the-century Victorian/Edwardian, but this year they switched things up a little and did 1920's, which was SO much fun!
In the past, I've kind of turned up my nose at 20's fashions because I don't find them to be the most flattering styles, but I've really come around over the past few years and I'm enjoying them more and more. I've discovered that not all 20's dresses look like shapeless feedsacks, and some of the styles are really chic and fun to wear.
