Fashion Friday: Victorian Carriages

Carriage love scenes are some of the best. Close quarters? Check. Lush fabrics and textiles? Check. Chance of getting caught and forced into matrimony? Double check!

When you think about it, it’s really quite amazing just what physical feats can be accomplished in a carriage. And for those you (who like me) may have trouble visualizing such luxary or simply are curious as to what Victorian Carriages looked like…here you go!

The Daily Mail posted this fabulous article about a Victorian Carriage(s) auction and it includes some gorgeous photography to really paint the picture of traveling in the Victorian and Regency eras.

I don’t know about you, but that purple and fushia woven pattern is to die for. As someone who gravitates towards neutrals and little pops of color, this is a wonderful first hand example of how we’ve embraced color and patterns historically!
