We at Lily Absinthe would like to take this opportunity to wish each and everyone of you a happy and prosperous new year! It’s been an exciting and somewhat hectic year as we’ve been travelling back and forth to Europe and there will be more of the same in the new year. We have all manner of exciting new projects for 2020 and we look forward to sharing them with you. 🙂

The late 1870s has always been a source of fascination for us and recently, we came across some interesting fashion plates published by The Young Ladies Journal dating from that period. To us, it’s simply amazing that wide variety of styles and colors that were available as depicted in this fashion plate:
What we find especially interesting is that there seemingly was no set “holiday color palette” like one sees today. What’s also interesting is that colors range from the jewel tones to pale pastels (something normally associated with the spring and summer months). Now, making allowances for artistic license in regard to colors, the styles themselves are still even considered on their own. And no surprise, the various pleatings and ruffles all serve to emphasize the cylindrical silhouette characteristic of this period.
So just in case you’re lacking in holiday inspiration, this should help. 🙂
Wishing everyone a happy and prosperous New Year for 2018 from us at Lily Absinthe!
For the first time in years, we’re not spending New Year’s at our No. 11. We made the decision to share the holidays with Adam’s Mother, because (as 2016 has shown us) life changes quickly and we need to be ready to embrace whatever happens…and, um, life is never dull with her around! 🙂
