This weekend, I went to the The Edwardian Ball & World's Faire 2011, held in San Francisco's Regency Ballroom (built 1909) on January 21 and 22, celebrating macabre mid-century storybook illustrator Edward Gorey, as well as Edwardian, Victorian, and Roaring Twenties fashion.

Nomi and I pose inside Edward Gorey's illustrations. Nomi has a beautiful lace Edwardian-style dress, while I am dressed as one of the "Gashlycrumb Tinies." She also brought a vintage fox stole named Rita.

    Vintage clothes always catch my eye.In earlyer times people put so much thought into how they dressed,even if they were poor woman wore dresses and men wore coat ,tie and hat..when I see someone now dressed that way you see how beautiful(women anyway)they all must of looked.

    Lisa: Back in the day my Mother would never have gone shopping without her hat and gloves,to my knowledge she never owned a pair of slacks.She always wore a apron around the house and had special"company aprons".It seems after the end of WW2 she started to substute wearing a hat for a babbucsa(sp).
    My Father always wore a hat,sometime it was a cap but for anything but
    work it was a hat.Any business type of activity he wore double breasted suits,tie and the right color hat.My folks were married in 1911,they lived through two WW's,a depression and managed to survive. I think it was Will Rogers that said"we were all poor and then along came the depression".
