Lovely ladies

Women's fashions from the early part of the last century were so enchanting.  Although I would not enjoy wearing corsets and heavy petticoats -- especially in hot weather -- the romantic dresses, hats, jewelry and hairstyles are very appealing.  After looking at these images, I'm thinking about wearing more feminine clothing and ditching the jeans-and-t-shirt look. (I usually LIVE in slacks, but I actually bought a skirt last week!)




Today's "Life Made Lovely Monday" downloads are vintage images of lovely ladies in their finery. Enjoy!
 Beauty from a 1913 Valentine postcard
"Miss Vanity" from an undated Austrian postcard
Beatrice

The Beatrice image is from a German postcard made from a painting by Angelo Asti, a French artist who lived from 1847 to 1903.

Ruby


The Ruby image is from an undated German postcard. I haven't been able to find information about the artist, M. Marco.  I'll update this post if I find out more about the painter.

Hope you like these as much as I do!
