24 Comments Hi, Kit Morgan here and as I’m at my daughter’s in New York, I was in a bit of a quandary as to what to write about. But then I remembered I have a few books here and thought I’d share with you some lovely fashion plates from one of them. After all, there’s always fashion going’s on around here. My daughter is a fashion photographer and music video director. Since my arrival, she’s shot for a major cosmetics company and done several fashion shoots as well. She even did a puppy shoot for a friend, then toddled off to San Francisco to shoot a music video. Currently, she’s in Scotland. Ah the life! At any rate, I have a book I bought at Strand’s Book Store in Manhattan last year with some lovely photos in it. My how fashion changes over the years. A lot of my stories take place on the Oregon prairie or the orchard covered rolling hills of what is now apple country in Washington state. My characters are dressed in simple attire, calico prairie dresses and aprons with simple white bonnets. But these, well, maybe I’ll write some stories in a different setting just so I can dress my characters in some of the fancier dresses of the day! Oh, by the way, that’s Rowena, the long-haired chihuahua in the above picture. Cute isn’t she? If she lived back in the 1800s, what would her owner be wearing? Well, it would depend on the decade … The 1850’s … 1860’s … 1870’s … Oh, those sleeves!
