Well hello there.

Some of my internet searching led me to some lovely sites, and you can find a fabulous article here on Tudor head wear.

Including the English and Spanish hoods.


It also led me to some wonderful images. Ones I couldn’t even have imagined.  I am thankful to have found some great reproductions, for example-

  1. I just love those 1920s wedding photographs, not sure they were all that happy about getting married, but they looked amazing.


    • It’s interesting to ponder isn’t it?…but indeed, they looked fabulous! I love the middle couple, shes just like “Tadah!” xX

  2. Wow! Love the wedding dresses! Lace is so beautiful 🙂

  3. Ooh perfect fix for me, I adore hats! I love the gable hoods of Tudor times, but adore the long flowing are they called henins? the floaty long flowing style seen in medieval films.

    • Oh I know what you mean! I have always referred to them as “princess hats” but I know that isn’t the correct term. I will find out for you and put it in my next post. Glad I could sort you out a fix, haha Xx

    If you haven’t got a top hat in your wardrobe you can’t possibly say you are well dressed😉

  5. I adore the long veil and the flouncy dress that goes with it, but men in ponchos?! That can NEVER be a good thing!

  6. I love this post. I remember going to the V&A a few years ago and just loving all the tudor and victorian dresses they had on display. I just wanted to break the glass and wear them!
