18th c. Court Costume Book Now Available

If you’re interested in buying the catalog for the 18th century court costume exhibit discussed below (Fastes de Cour), it’s now available at the cheapest price here from Amazon.fr. Yes, the interface is all in French, but the layout/buttons are exactly the same as the English language version, so it shouldn’t be too hard to figure out — and you can sign in to your Amazon.com account and it will pull up all your info. (Random site note: adding tags to this post to see if those are useful; if so, I’ll eventually go back and tag older entries too.)

    Cool. I may order that.

    I’ve signed up for your robe de anglese (or however its spelled – me speaks no French!) class.

    And I’ve decided to only go with wigs if I want big hedghog hair. :P

    You are an EV-IL woman–but in a good way. Just ordered the book and hoping that there is another 1660’s dress in it. Yay!

    I can’t wait to get my copy! And the BEST party is that the content totally relates to the research project I just got a grant to undertake this summer, so I can just pay with some of my grant instead of shelling out my own money! Hoorah!

    I would bring the 1770s robe À la franÇaise. Remembering Colonial Williamsburg in the spring, there should be lots of yellow and peachy Tulips. Red bricks galore. The dress would looks SO stunning in that setting.
