Spring Green

In honor of the spring and the upcoming Earth Day let's shop the museums for a green-themed outfit...

I've always been really fond of this c.1775-80 green print polonaise currently in the Kyoto Costume Museum collection. It's the perfect thing for a stroll in the sunshine.

If we get too warm we can cool off using this painted fan with plenty of green trees on it. The fan depicts the surrender after the Battle of Culloden and is dated to 1746.
Of course we can't forget about the shoes, so here are a pair of brocade heels in green and cream in the style of the 1760s.
At the end of the day we can relax in this green ladies banyan and write in our journal about the events of the day.
