Today's Style Inspire:
Mary Todd Lincoln - President Abe Lincoln's wife
Not the most attractive woman ever, but damn, look at what she's wearing! I would love a bolero like that one, I love the frills on the sleeves and collar area. Gorgeous.
Prim, proper, and very elegant. I adore it!
Get the Look:
~Wear your hair pulled back and parted in the middle. You could tie your hair up in a strict bun or do a fancy braided updo.
~Wear blouses and dresses with high collars, wide sleeves, and long flared out skirts.
~Use simple jewelry like cameos and choker necklaces.
~Toss on a shawl. There's nothing that screams 1800's First Lady like a fancy shawl.
