I have a Master's degree in Modern American history (1865-present). Don't even get me started on the Reconstruction Era Amendments or the history of lynching in Wyoming.
One day I want to travel to all the Civil War battle sites.
And I won't even apologize for it.
My dad was watching a combo of the history channel and military channel last night (so at least I come by it honestly) and there were some photos of Civil War era uniforms.
Blue and Gray.
I guess you could say they inspired my outfit today. Well, not the stiff looking wool uniforms but the colors. The uniforms did have buttons, so there's a connection. And they did have belts (but they were probably for practical, not fashion, purposes). Sadly when soldiers got a pair of shoes they were boots not zebra striped ballet flats. *sigh*
|You might be wondering why I'm making that face. Good question. I'll let you know if I ever have the answer.|
|The Divine Miss M was dying to get into a photo this morning.|
|M.E. has quite the fashion sense--gauzy dress over floral pj pants, and a hoodie. I should let her dress me!|
