Hello Darlings!

Oh it’s been a good week for historical fashion porn in my social feeds, probably to do with a few of you emailing me some fab sites. Thank you so much! I love getting sent new tip offs, and I certainly liked these two sites that were sent to me via my facebook page –

If you’ve ever wondered how that hair style was achieved  –

And now you know. You’re welcome.

All’s well with Cromwell

WolfHall rocked my socks this week! Have any of you watched it? A few scamps were being extra critical of it in the media and on my social feeds. The latter sadly meant that I may have accidentally upset a family member with a rebellious defense of it’s honor in a drunken 3am status.  I critiqued the nay sayers and completely forgot ma famille had been disappointed with it in a status the week before! EEk, shot completely misfired on that one, damn you Daily Mail!

Cromwell didn’t get away with his silent fart much to his dismay.

I still think Wolfhall is great but understand that the darkness, slow pace and odd timing may be annoying at times, but it’s meant to be one persons story. It’s not a fly on the wall narrative. I am an Anne Boleyn fan, but I am not up in arms because of how she is charaterised in the show, Cromwell doesn’t really know her personally yet and so, this is how she comes across to him from the experience he’s has with her. Remember, we know the history, they are the history.

On that note, I’d love to make history, for good things of course!

Anyhow, it comes to the dress of the week with a few more dresses thrown in because, well, any excuse!

I love a bit of faux fur and I also adore this new find in the blogosphere, weddings and history *girlish squeal* so this weeks dress of the week pleases me muchos!

You don’t have to be a high born noble lady to rock the medieval style, loving this middling style outfit –

If there is a time period that you want me to research and share with you, please let me know. Also keep sending me things, I really appreciate it. I don’t find it creepy at all, haha. I have a twitter and facebook page, so feel free to add me. My pinterest has more regular history porn if you need a more frequent hit.

Speak soon my lovelies!

Love, love BP XX
