Last week I showed you Liotard’s mid-18th century ‘up-market shop girl’ as Lynne aptly identified her. La Belle Chocolatière’s rust and grey-blue outfit was deemed equally beautiful – of only she hadn’t tried to pair it with a pink hat. This dropped the rating from a perfect 10 down to a round 9 – still exceptional.
I feel that I’ve shown too many muted, colourless dresses lately. To remedy that, rather than showing you something black and white and stripey for the HSF Stripes challenge, here is something colourful and rainbow-stripey, with horizontal stripes and vertical striped fringing.
What do you think? Too much? Does it look a little too much like a cupcake, or is it a fun twist on the usual floral, lacey 1850s evening gown?
