Meet Mercedes The Victorian Lady & Co

Hi ladies,

This seriously cracked me up!

I found this photo recently when I went to Bs As on holiday.

It's me and my sisters on a Victorian Period Photo.

It's in a photo studio in San Telmo 
(a neighborhood in Buenos Aires famous for the antique shops and it's where the Tango was born apparently).
The dresses, the hats, accessories and the set are all courtesy of the studio.

L-R: Vicky, Paula and me.

I think I must have been...15 or less even?

And I remember I was standing on a pile of books because the dress was long and I'm quite short!
I'm wearing dark nail polish..not very victorian but It was a very spontaneous thing we did so I wasn't prepared.
None of us had make-up on because it was a very relaxed Sunday stroll with the family and it was perfect for Victorian times as they didn't wear much make-up anyway.

Such a great photo and a piece of sister's history.

Love it.




I love the Victorian you?
Have you ever taken a period picture?
