It's cold.

As a great portion of the United States can attest, it’s been quite cold the past few days.  Where I live it didn’t get nearly as cold as other parts of the country, but -2 is not a number we see very often and I’ve been trying to stay warm by wearing as many layers as possible. I’m naturally cold all the time, and my thin blood can’t handle much below freezing. I often wonder how I would have survived in the days before central heating and electricity. Honestly, I'm doubtful.

When I saw the above fashion plate, I knew I’d found my Regency counterpart. A pelisse, shawl, and fur capelet? Yep, that’s pretty much the only way I could stay alive considering the fact I’m currently wearing three sweaters and I'm still cold! If I ever have a winter Regency event to go to, I will definitely be recreating this look.
