I love the layers, the decadance and excess of the Victorian era.
The hats, the parasols, gloves, bustles...
I am also a fan of the corset. That fragile, perfect, waspish waist.

There are a few items with Victorian roots which I simply cannot resist.
1. Anything with buttons! Especially small, pearl or covered buttons.Gloves, shoes, shirts...anything really.
This beauty from louth craft mark
3. Lace blouses. Especially with a high collar. Mmmmm...this one is delicious...
I LOVE this beaded lace blouse from theOutnet.com
4. Cameos. I own many. Rings, Brooches, Necklaces. I could always use more though! haha!
5. Top Hats. I know this is a menswear item, but I adore top hats anyway! I love, love, love the miniture
top hats that are for sale for women right now. (I in fact own one!) Love this hat! Very authentic (plus the
added bonus of having feathers!!)
