Suffragette









We were down by Parliament today, taking advantage of the almost* period appropriate architecture. Others were participating in the processes of Government, demonstrating in favour of marijuana law reform. Kelly thought she'd put in a word for giving women the vote while she had the brolly for it.


*The gowns are Victorian, 1860-ish, I believe, and even I can work out that the gates are Georgian. The big GvR on them gives it right away.

I'd guess the gowns are more like 1880 than 1860, based on (a) the flat fronts of the skirts, and (b) the close fitted sleeves. Around 1890 the sleeves got very puffy. The hats are just perfect. I love Leimomi's (?) little straw number.

You could well be right there, Leimomi did tell me twice, and I of course, having a poor memory for actual numbers, promptly forgot.

The pink dress is from 1871, and the blue ensemble is based off a Renoir painting from 1882.

Also that picture of Kelly is beyond fabulous!

Wow Bill impressive! It was a great fun time and one should never miss an opportunity to fervently brandish a brolly in jest. Madame Ornata/Kelly/The pseudo-suffragette (BTW I never inhaled).

I've been participating in the processes of Government this week too, fat lot of good it's done though.

I blame the fact that you weren't wearing some variant on hoodie, jeans and chucks.
