We're continuing the DAS series and today I just want to hit some highlights about the fashion of the time period and how you can pull some of it into your daily life to ... you know... make things a little more interesting. Personally, I think we should all use the accents but so far no one will join me in my endeavors to sound British.
We still have a little DAS to go after this! Hair, more fashion, you know... good stuff. So read on!
Attic Paper had a catalog for sale that included this picture of fab hats from 1915. I can't imagine a woman going out without a hat on! Pick one up from an antique or thrift store AND MAKE IT OVER into something as period correct or modern as you dare to be.

Cameos have been around for a long, long time but became popular when Queen Victoria started sporting one in the 1800's. Fashion trends didn't change as much then as they do now in our Internet-crazed world, so you can bet that they were still rocking cameos in the early 1900's with fervor.

Those are just a few tips for now! There is *so* much more, lace... booties... petticoats, tunics over long skirts... I could go on and on... but I'm out of time! I'll try to get the DAS Hair edition up tomorrow (whoa. Love the hair.), but it may have to roll into next week. Have a great weekend, people! All the best, and as always, thanks for reading!
