Illustration Friday ~ Hide

Inspired by the movie "Marie Antoinette" (starring Kirsten Dunst), a 14-year old Austrian who married Louis XVI and later became queen at the age of 19. The period costumes and settings are absolutely gorgeous and he story fascinating yet so tragic.

Having grown up in a family who loved the victorian era and anything elegantly antique I too carry the love of all things victorian and french.

What better than a travel dress for the sophisticated woman of royalty with compartments to hide one's most valuable treasures, toiletries or to tote a beloved pet.
