March 17 – Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Ah, The Wearin’ O’ the Green. Such a sentiment of national pride and spirit. I wonder what that would have looked like when brought to life in the late Victorian era. Oh! Like this…

    • This one popped up on Pinterest a while ago and I saved it for a St. Patrick’s Day post because…well…you can see why. I find a lot of the “Wow” dresses and items on Pinterest. I also look on museum websites and troll through their collections. And I look at well-known seller’s websites, too: Augusta Auctions, Antique Dress, sites like those. It can take a ridiculous amount of time to find something that suits a “Wow.” Or I can find half a dozen things in half an hour. I never know, and that’s part of the fun: the hunt. 🙂
