We want you to be belle of the ball, the Edwardian Ball that is. Stroll down to the Regency Ballroom this Friday for the Edwardian World’s Faire, and Saturday for the 11th Annual Edwardian Ball, one of SF’s most lavish costume parties.
Edwardian fashion is all about prim, high collars, ruffly frocks with oversized sleeves, elaborate hats with cascading plumes, and a whole lot of lace. Now, let’s one, two step, and remix that a bit for 2011.
For a modern Edwardian look try a high collared LBD with flattering ruffle sleeves, lace tights and a feather headband. And to spice up the black-on-black-on-black, try high-backed silver pumps and vintage-inspired drop earrings.
