O, but it has been too long my dears. What with all the rest cures and the Olympics and renovations at the Hof.
I think you all deserve something pretty to look at, as well as a little parlour game to keep you amused, so I will post a series of my favorite frocks herein. Some of these you’ll recognize, as they are part of formal portraiture. Can you match the outfits with their purpose? Here are the categories:
A. the Hungarian coronation gown
B. the Winterhalter gala gown
C. the Polterabend kleid frock
D. a mourning riding habit
Now, mix and match, and offer your answers in the comment section (e.g. A = ONE and so on–though that is not the correct answer!). Winner will receive one of my favorite books of the year: The Lost Girl by Sangu Mandanna.
You have the entire weekend to think this through. I shall choose my winner randomly (as long as the answers are correct), and post the results on Tuesday August, 28th.
Good luck, and happy viewing!
