Jardin de belle Epoque

It was grand! The location was a bit hidden, but really nice. In a park and since I was late - Am I ever on time?!- everyone already had their picnic blankets out.





The evening before I was told by Neisella that she brings so much food that I should not bring anything myself. And she was right:

 

Although I was so afraid to look stupid with the bonnet on, I tried it on "for just 5 minutes". I ended up wearing it almost all day!

Damn, should have seen this earlier, I could have said hi.

Then again, that would have been creepy, probably, since we don't actually know each other... :p

@ trisha: Well, thank you! *hug*

@ Alexandriaweb: Thanks for the compliment! I still find it strange, but in combination with the full outfit, it is kind of fitting...

@ Xanthy: Well, I would have liked to meet you for the first time! Have you been there? What did you wear? I hope I remember everyone...

You look so cute in your outfit, perfect for the occation!. So many lovely people there. Wish there could be events like this where I live.

Squeee!
You're sooo cute, can I take you and put you in my bookcase right in front of Jane Austen's novels?

Honestly, however strange the bonnet may seem on its own, it looks great in the outfit.

What a lovely Outfit. And a great contrast to all those dark robes in the background. And I agree with the others: combined with the dress, the bonnet looks great.

@ linnea-maria: I'm really happy because this was also the first time that an historical meeting was close to my place!

@ Wollmaus: Thanks! I think I come to like the bonnet a bit in the end. But I still prefer real hats! ^^

@ ette: Thanks! Neisella is actually planning a regency dress in black and after checkeing out regency mourning outfits I think about making one in black as well - for WGT next year!
