Shocking underwear!

Here I am, looking like one of those dollies that hides a roll of toilet roll paper underneath.  Apologies if this doesn't bring up the image of a crocheted dolly on the top of the toilet tank!

Gorgeous husband took this photo of me in a hoop skirt and corset when we visited the Costume Museum in Bath.  Little did I realize that just a few years later I would be wearing one of these swinging bell type garments with a blue Victorian dress over top of it.  It really does have a lovely swinging rhythm as you walk.

The Costume Museum had various outfits for the public to try on to get "a feel of yesteryear", so to speak.  Naturally, I popped it on over top my sweater, for a truly fetching look.

We spent the rest of the day, after leaving the Museum, exploring various interesting boutiques, workshops, antique shops and funky junk stores.  It was a smashing day.

How fun! And it is a 'truly fetching look.' However, you are lovely in the hoop skirt and corset!

Thanks Judith! A hoop skirt is probably one of the few things I don't have in my wardrobe. I just need bigger closets, and then... well, it will be wall to wall ball gowns!
