Gibson GirlPosted: April 29, 2016 | |
I feel very much like a Gibson Girl in this outfit. Considering the 1900’s is one of my favorite eras in fashion (along with the 1800’s, 1880’s, and 1930’s), it’s not surprising. I think it’s the combination of the simple, high-collared shirt, the dark skirt (of course, on a real Gibson Girl, the skirt would’ve been floor-length), and sensible but still cute shoes. Should’ve worn a brooch too. What I’m really missing, though, is the hairstyle – I’ve tried the “Gibson tuck” so many times before, but my stupid hair won’t stay put and won’t hold the bobby pins. So alas, I had to make do with this quick bun instead.
