A Holiday Trip to Williamsburg

I’ve always wanted to visit Colonial Williamsburg in December. All the lovely holiday decorations around town look so festive and cheerful – a perfect antidote to winter blahs. Serendipitously, a group of us all had thoughts to visit this winter and we were able to spend a long weekend together relaxing, eating, and enjoying the sights.

Gloria (Photo courtsey of In the Long Run Designs) and her husband Mike were also visiting for the weekend, and they organized a holiday photoshoot around the historic district, and graciously took portraits of anyone who asked. I wore my new 1790-92 jacket and petticoat and I couldn’t be more thrilled with how the photos came out. Gloria and Mike did a fantastic job and you can actually see how beautifully detailed this Burnley & Trowbridge fabric is.

I made a new early 1790s tall hat to go with my jacket (more on that later), and a new large silk fichu. Because it was quite chilly, I wore my cream pelisse I made many years ago and carried a matching brown silk velvet muff. I also found a fantastic walking stick there in one of the historic shops, and it really completed the whole look.

Finally, I’m wearing pearl and hoop earrings from Dames a la Mode, cosmetics from LBCC Historical, black wool Dunmores from American Duchess, and the fantastic wig I commissioned from Jenny La Fleur last year.
