It’s finally starting to feel a bit like Autumn in Southern California! Our Summer this year has been long and hot, and I’m trilled to see some gray skies and rain today. This sort of weather gets me dreaming of coats and suits, and pretty hats and scarves.
I’m particularly inspired by the 1890s to the 1910s at present, so here are some lovely images from one of the catalogs in my reference library. These are from John Wanamaker Fashion Mail Order Catalog for Fall and Winter of 1918-1919. WWI era women’s fashions, especially the suits and hats, are some of my favorites.
The bat-like hat below is perfect for Halloween! Enjoy!

I love the coats! Anytime a design highlights femininity and style *without* featuring a tiny waist, I am HaPpY!!!
