Regency bling!

You’re a Regency lady getting ready for the day, and you reach into your jewelry-chest for a ring with which to adorn your hand. Which one do you choose?

Ooh la la!

In the next chapter I’m going to write, my heroine will be wearing a gown rather like this one . . . as she swans about a luxurious gaming hell in Regency-era London. I can hardly wait to write it. :)

It’s the sixth book in my Penhallow Dynasty series, by the way. Would you like to save it on Goodreads? Click here.

Which gown?

You’re a Regency lady and you’ve been invited to a fancy London party (rumor is that the Prince Regent and Mr. Darcy of Pemberley will be there!). But what to wear? Which gorgeous gown will you choose?

Something pretty . . .

. . . upon which to feast our eyes. A gorgeous wedding dress!

These images via @whatgrandmawore on Twitter: “A trim of orange blossom runs around the bertha of this 1856-59 dress . . . with large silk bows hanging from the shoulders. The bodice ends at a sharp point, nipping in the waist and emphasizing the skirt. Take a look at the lacing on the bodice.”

One more view, this one with a somber background that highlights the gown’s dazzling color, graceful lines, and sense of movement:

One could make quite an entrance dressed in this, don’t you think?

Pretty in purple!

Behold this gorgeous velvet and chiffon gown from the early 1900s. I’d love to swan around in this, just like a character in Downton Abbey. How about you?

“A glimmering butterfly dress . . .”

Isn’t this absolutely gorgeous?

According to the description, this “glimmering butterfly dress and matching headdress [were] made by Worth in 1912. Ivory silk charmeuse overlaid with chiffon, bodice and back exquisitely fashioned in butterfly wings glittering with amber beads and iridescent peacock-blue paste jewels. Created for a costume party.”

I don’t write in this era, but a gown like this makes me want to!
