So many pretty dresses part 1-Victorian

One most fun parts of the holidays is getting all dressed up. This is not a new tradition and is something that has been going on for hundreds of years. So in part with this tradition I am doing as 5 part blog series of my favorite costumes from each of my favorite eras. First up the Victorian Era which lasted from roughly  the 1830s-1900.

This one from the Met museum in New York . I love the color!

Here are a few more examples from the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
