The subject of clothes in historicals always fascinates me. It took me ages to research the clothes my characters wore in my two historicals.

So, take your favorite historical era and tell me what outfit you'd wear if we held a costume party in the Regency suite.

I think I'd go for glitz and glamor and try a nice gown from the 18th century. I'd even wear a corset. I imagine the clothes would be heavy. I'd powder my hair and put a small patch on the side of my mouth, to highlight how sexy it is. LOL

I'd wear jewels and carry a beautiful ivory fan. And I'd wear gloves to cover my fingernails that have taken to breaking a lot lately.

What about you?
