Historic Style




Hello! This is my historical fashion and architecture blog.
My other blogs:
Mint Macaroons (personal) / Inside a Chocolate Tardis (fandom)

New blog!

chilixocoatl:

It’s on a new account, so I can send messages/like stuff on it, and I’ll be posting pictures of things I find on Etsy (crafty/vintage version of Ebay if you don’t know it), since I’ve recently been a bit addicted to browsing all the pretty homemade dresses on it etc. 

It’s called myetsycloset (sorry about the not-so-inventive name…), so have a look if you want :) 

Thanks for reading!

how to love your favourite historical figure

  1. read about them
  2. gaze at paintings of them and sigh
  3. remember that they’re dead
  4. curl up on the floor in foetal position
  5. cry
