CoBloWriMo Day 4: Fave Friday--Favorite Era



Every time I try to pick a favorite era, I think I get it narrowed down to a specific decade and then something from another decade will catch my eye and I can't possibly choose!

My preferences start in the mid to late 18th century...

The Snowshill Collection, 1750-60

William Williams, Deborah Hall, 1766, the Brooklyn Museum

Mary Wilkes; John Wilkes, by Johan Joseph Zoffany, 1782
Right on through the transition into the 19th century...

Gallery of Fashion, 1799

Costume Parisien, Bibliotheque des Arts Decoratifs, 1802-03

And of course the mid 19th century as well...

Private Collection, on Display at Greenfield Village

And even beyond (a bit!)

The Susan Greene Collections, Genesee Country Village & Museum
So, I think it's fair to say I can't necessarily choose.  Between existing garments, fashion plates, portraits, and even your own imagination...can you?
