Student. Lover of many things, including period drama. I occasionally re-blog content that is loosely related to period drama or history, such as art, dresses, or historical-modern day humor. For the most part it relates or at least mixes it up a little. Feel free to look around or leave a comment. Welcome to Period Dramarama.

"She hated the thought of appearing austere. Relaxed was how she wanted to feel, and, at the same time, self-contained. Above all, she wanted to look as though she had not given the matter a moment’s thought, and that would take time." - Atonement,Chapter IX

In the series A Frozen Tale, photographer Alexia Sinclair whisks us off into another place and time, an era filled with old traditions, formal fashion, and ornate decor. The photographs were shot in Skokloster Castle, an untouched 17th-century castle in Sweden.

winternetsoldier asked: Hey, what was that last gifset from? The one with the soldier and the brunette nurse(?) It looked intriguing!


Answer:

Hey! :-) The last gif set was from “The Crimson Field.” I haven’t seen it yet but I agree with you in that it does look intriguing!

Culture and Customs: The harem-pants style, or jupe-culottes in French, was introduced by Paul Poiret in 1911. Women who wore the billowy trousers were seen as bohemian and forward thinking. Harem pants were often associated with the Ballets Russes, whose dancers perhaps inspired Poiret.
