the beauty of the Aesthetic
So I'm probally the last one to see this but...

I just discovered the upcoming V&A exhibit The Cult of Beauty: The Aesthetic Movement 1860-1900 exhibition has it's own blog. Woot! Not much is there yet but there is a nice close-up of one the 1880s Liberty gowns. Hopefully the blog will be more active (and full of frocks) once the exhibition opens in April.

Also the FIDM blog just posted pic of one of it's clothing items that will be in the exhibition. (It has wheat Aubry!) - fun!

Oh I wish I could see it in person but I'll have to make do with the catalog I guess!

I really wish they would update that blog more! I was so excited when I found it but they have posted anything new this month. :(

Yay wheat! I really need to embroider something with a wheat motif.

I just saw that too. It reminded me again that I need to make some kind of aesthetic outfit of linen to wear to summertime vintage dances. I tried wearing a silk smoking jacket, but it's not much cooler than a tux.
