Bring back gorgeous attire:

Greetings dear reader. I hope your week was delightful. I also hope you have treated yourself nicely. Taking time for yourself to enjoy something special you like.

Today I have been feeling very inspired. Yesterday (10/06/20) I had a dream that I was living in the late 1700s, early to mid-1800s. I think I had this dream after I read and look at many articles on beautiful dresses. It made me think how fantastic would it be if I could bring back historic attire without having to call it historic costume? I was thrilled and full of ideas. I no longer what to buy clothes for two main reasons.
Reason 1: Fast fashion is horrible for the environment. I don’t want to contribute to that anymore. For the past 6 years, I have changed how I live and I have tried to be as conscientious as possible. Reason 2: This one is a few little reasons combined into one. I call it not wanting to blend in. But let me explain. I can ever find clothes that fit my body perfectly because fast fashion doesn’t have time to tailor to individuals (and yes I will buy some clothing items or accessories from handmade companies who take time to cater to their buyer). I can’t ever find what I want to wear, in my mind I have a picture and idea of what I want to wear but it’s not available anywhere. That’s the two main reasons why. I pick skirts and dresses over anything. I love the elegance and beauty of skirts and dresses. This is where my passions came in. I want to bring back to the modern wardrobe the gorgeous attire of the past, be it a simple Victorian walking skirt or a gorgeous Medieval dress. I feel the most confident when I wear historically inspired clothes, but now I am ready to dive deep into the historic attire. To pull as many details of it into my wardrobe. I want to give up all my jeans for skirts and dresses. All my sneakers for dainty heels. I have been deeply enchanted by the beauty of the historic wardrobe. I also want to make whatever clothing piece as close to how it was made in its original time.
If you’d like to see a “social experiment” I can wear period clothing and see what others will think. I’ll divide it into age categories and acquaintance or guest.

Thank you for stopping by and giving me a moment of your time. Wishing you the best.
Yours faithfully,
Emilia Pereira Ramos.
