Another edition of Bag of News!

I got featured again on weardrobe.com a couple of weeks ago. Am so happy! Because the featured page is where I usually look for outfit style inspirations from other stylish girls :D
Here's the outfit pic that got featured.
I'm wearing a J.Crew jacket, brown dotted top which I got from a swap via my online store Tigerlily Store, a vintage corduroy mini skirt with grommets detail, open-toe wedgies that i bought online, Vincci corduroy bag and two stacks of ethnic necklaces.

-----------------------------------------

Random fact: Did you know that in the past time (in Regency era to be exact), ready-made apparel was not commonly available. Clothes were custom-made and not off the rack. There are many time spent in making clothes for one self.
Example: if you want to make a gown then you have to go to the Linen-Drapers first. Linen-Drapers is what we called fabric merchant now. You go there to browse and buy some fabrics for your gown.

And then you go to the Haberdashers to buy some trimmings (according to Wikipedia, A haberdasher is a person who sells small articles for sewing, such as buttons, ribbons, and zippers).

And after that you can go visit the Dressmaker to browse and choose a design for your gown. New gowns are ordered by consulting the many fashion sketches available at the Dressmaker.

And if you want to add some accessories to your custom-made gown (and accessories is a must back then!) you have to go to the Milliner for hats.

And then to other store for fan, gloves, etc. You come to the Jeweller for jewelries and oh, shoes were custom-made too!

Imagine all those time wasted for just one gown! And compare it to today where we could go to the mall, pick our own dress, try it on the spot and then brought the dress home at the same day. Or you could even buy clothes online without leaving your bed. talk about super time-saver! and thank God for internet.

And incase you were curious if there were a shopping mall back at the time, well here's what they looked like. The beginning of the shopping malls that we know and cherish today:




Thanks to Regency England website for this lovely historical shopping info :D I love browsing their website.
