If you have an interest in historical costuming, I recommend adding A Most Beguiling Accomplishment to your reading list. Cassidy (disclaimer: my daughter) shows fashion plates from centuries past, frequently from French publications of the times.
Were the French always the arbiters of taste
that modern arbiters of taste claim them to be?
See for yourself.
Also, Cassidy is running a contest, but not for much longer.
