Announcing Period Drama Fashion Week!

Dearest darlingest readers,

     Do you love historical fashions? Do you often find yourself wishing you could dress in the styles of the dear old dead days gone by? Do you know the difference between a spencer and a pelisse robe? Do dresses like this one just about make you go ga-ga?

   If so, then you just may be a historical fashion fanatic. You're in good company. :-) But that's not all: Do you love watching period dramas? Do you love blog events?

     Well, I have an announcement to make! I, yours truly, am hosting my very first ever blog event here at For the Beauty of the Earth: a Period Drama Fashion Week on March 3rd-8th!!!! *virtual confetti* I have never hosted any sort of event before, so I'm really super-duper excited about this, and I'm hoping y'all will be too, because I'm inviting you to participate! Here are the basic guidelines:

   To participate: During the week of March 3rd-8th, fill out the tag (which will be coming on the 3rd when the event starts) and post it on your own blog. Also if you'd like you can write your own posts about period fashions and costumes in period dramas, ect. throughout the week. Here are some suggestions:
  • A list of your favorite dresses from period dramas
  • A list of your favorite period drama wardrobes
  • A post about costumes in one of your favorite movies
  • Historical fashion facts
    It can really be anything historical/period drama related, or even non-period drama related. Then, at the end of the week there will be a post link-up here of all the posts written by the different participants.

  ***Please note, I am not making it a requirement that you write your own posts-- if you don't want to write anything but you still want to participate (or if you just want to fill out the tag), that's totally fine. Also, if you don't want to write anything new but you have already written posts in the past about period drama fashion, you can definitely feature those in the end-of-the-week link-up. 

I don't know why I'm including so many random pictures in this post. Especially this one. I really have no idea what possessed me. 'Tis most irregular.

   Requirements: There are basically no requirements, except that you have to have to love fashion and period dramas. (You HAVE to. :-P) Writing your own posts is optional (meaning that you don't have to if you don't want to, but of course y'all knew that), but I would certainly love it if you did. I'm hoping a lot of you will want to participate! The more the merrier, you know. :-)

    EEEEEP! Are you as excited as I am?!? :-) Here are some buttons to get the word out!

My personal favorite. :-)
    I'm hoping this event will be excessively diverting and that many of you participate! More details coming soon, but until then, ta-ta! :-)


  1. Oh my... I'm pretty busy at the moment, but I'm definitely hoping to participate! This looks too good to pass up! :) Gorgeous buttons!

  2. Oh! This sounds like fun! I will have to start brainstorming a post...

  3. Awwww! I am a period dramam fashion fanatic! Wish I could participate!

  4. Naomi,
    I'm glad you want to participate! I was thinking, since you don't have a blog (unless you have one that I don't know about...), perhaps you would like to do a guest post here at For the Beauty of the Earth? If you'd like to, you can email me and we can arrange it-- my email can be found on the 'About the Authoress' page. I really would love it if you could participate! :-)


I'd love it if you'd drop me a line or two! I always enjoy receiving comments from readers and friends. I ask that you please keep your comments clean and God-honoring, and please don't write anything you wouldn't want your grandmother to read. Also, if you are commenting under anonymous, please do leave your name (or some sort of moniker so that you aren't totally nameless). Thank you so much and have a lovely day!
