Fashion Friday - Charlotte Marie de Gasville

 Here we have Charlotte Marie de Gasville. Her hair is apparently powdered, and in a puffy bouffant. She's wearing a grey ribbon and flower, both nearly matching her hair.

 Her gown has a tent bodice (open at the bottom, closed at the top) with flowers embroidered on her modesty piece (or fishu) and a nosegay pinned to the front. Ribbons of blue dress material run along the front of the dress, ruffles line the neck, and lace flounces have been added below the tight sleeves.
 So, I'd love to know what you think. Does she have style?

  1. This is just a guess on my part, but she's got to have loads of style. All of those things added together wouldn't just be a happy accident. Or, would they? :)

  2. lol, you never know. I've seen some seriously over-accessorized portraits. I think she has some style though. :-D
    Thanks for sharing your opinion,
