Paris Fashion 1900

The Paris 1900 exhibit had delicious examples of the all-important art of dressing–always a priority for the French.  No wonder women who could afford it traveled from England and America just to buy their wardrobes.

I loved this dress, just the thing for attracting admiring glances–and filling up one’s dance card–at a ball. I can hear the music!

Boots

Fine leather boots would look fetching while stepping out of a carriage.

Skirt

An elegant skirt and ruffled blouse, maybe for entertaining in one’s Paris town-home. The sinuous curving lines of Art Nouveau were not just for furniture.  Women delighted in wearing Art Nouveau.

The Belle Epoque–what an era!
