What is a Victorian Fancy Dress Ball?
A Victorian Fancy Dress Ball was a ball given in many different centuries, but this time taking place in the 19th century. Altough all clothing was 19th century in terms of style, underpinnings and often silhouette, a theme was chosen to dress up in. Guests of the Victorian Fancy Dress Ball are welcome to choose any silhouette of the whole of the 19th century, as long as it's combined with a Fancy Dress theme! See for inspiration below, however feel free the let your creativity flow.

Thank you so much for posting these lovely pictures @elisescostumes!! Both shoes and stockings were purchased at La Rose Passementarie
(Click on the link at the top or bottom of the page to change the language to English!!) Reposted from @elisescostumes - My collection of historical shoes is growing. I had my eyes on the black wool Dunmores from @americanduchess for so long and I gave myself a belated xmas present when I saw @larosecoutureshari had -one- pair left, in my size, on top of offering a small (but welcome!) discount. And since I'm weak, I celebrated the end of the year by snatching a pair of Pompadours. The last pair was in my size (it's a sign, I tell ya!) and again, the small but very welcome discount was enough to push me over 😌 Now I'm really, really broke though 😂 But I have pretty shoes 🤷🏻♀️ - #regrann

It's the 1st of January already, time flies! 11 years ago La Rose Couture officially opend, and what a roller-coaster that has been! I am looking forward to all the new commissions for 2019. But the first of January also means my dad's birthday and that makes it a bittersweet day. Because I will always miss you dad and am grateful for my memories of you. Like this photo on our wedding day, you're waiting with Mark for me to out of the mansion, so you could walk me down the aisle ❤️
