Fashion A Hundred Years Ago

Wednesday, September 11, 1912:  So say we call it a day again.

Fashion a Hundred Years Ago

Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:

Since it was another slow day for Grandma, I’d like to tell you about my latest blogging adventure.

I’ve enjoyed occasionally sharing hundred-year-old fashion pictures with you. I’ve found lots of pictures in old magazines—and can’t possibly use all of them on this site since Grandma only occasionally mentioned clothes or shopping.

I decided that it would be fun to feature a one-hundred-old fashion each day, so I started a new blog called Fashion A Hundred Years Ago.

You might want to check it out if you enjoy looking at the old fashions.

    1. You’re right! Though I think that the new one will take less time than this one, so I think that I’ll have time to do both. It’s quicker to post a picture or two than to write text.

  1. I’ve always loved clothes from previous centuries! What a fantastic idea for a blog. I can’t wait to see it. It will also be interesting to see how different clothes may or may not have been between yours and my countries in different eras. :)

  2. I too have always enjoyed seeing the fashions of long ago. I always try and picture my grandmother dressed in these fashions and I just can’t do it!! By 1912 she was newly married and my eldest aunt was just born. I look forward to visiting your new page. Blessings – Patty

    1. I’m not sure whether I’m an old soul when it comes to fashion or an out-of-touch soul. I always think that I’m several years behind whatever is the latest fashion.
