Today I have a new video for you...it's basically a blog post in video form (lol) - you can listen to my charming stuffed-up-elf voice tell you about the gown in this famous Boucher portrait of Madame de Pompadour, 1756:


  1. OMG it's so pretty, I can see why people would want to make it - surrounded by foaming dress like that. SO sexy in a Mistress of Louis sort of way.

    1. go big or go home, right? I've never worn a gown quite as frothy as Madame P's, but I do feel extra glam in my most formal historical dresses. It's a nice feeling!

  2. I love being able to get a really close up look at the portrait to see the details!
