It’s finally here! Our very first Thoughtful Third Thursday link up!
I’m taking my inspiration today from Agatha Christie: An Autobiography. The first 3 sections of the book are about young Agatha’s childhood in Victorian England. There is much discussion of Victorian values and social norms. This is the quote that inspired me:
The drawing-room at Ealing was a wonderful period piece. There was practically no room in it to move about. It had a rather splendid thick Turkey carpet on the floor, and every type of brocaded chair; each one of them uncomfortable. It had two, if not three, marquetry china cabinets, a large central candelabra, standard oil lamps, quantities of small whatnots, occasional tables, and French Empire furniture. The light from the window was blocked by a conservatory, a prestige symbol that was a must, as in all self-respecting Victorian houses.
This quote inspired me to do something I never do – over accessorize!
And here is how I actually wore the outfit, more 1990s than 1890s, eh?
