Fashions of the Future as Imagined in 1893
Illustrations from “Future Dictates of Fashion” by W. Cade Gall that was published in the January 1893 issue of The Strand magazine.
At first I thought this was some “fashion of witches and wizards through the ages” type thing but nah everyone is supposed to dress like this. I wish everyone dressed like this.
judy-huang tagged me with once you get this, say 5 nice things about yourself, & it was just sitting in my inbox cos i’d been busy lately, but really, i couldn’t think of anything! & i didn’t want her to think i was ignoring her, so i messaged back with the above post, & she answered what i couldn’t by being the most amazing sweetheart in return! ..it’s so nice to learn what other people actually think of you, even if it were to be negative, i like to know how i’m coming across- like feedback in school! love ya, judy!
so, my 5 nice things (basically cheating my way out of it by jumping off of what judy said):
1. My ability to shop for clothes/shoes/wardrobe accessories by only shopping at thrift stores, or in retail places that have a clearance rack. All my clothes cost $10>, per item. Can’t fathom spending more than that!
2. I know what my carbon footprint is, & even though I recycle, compost, carpool, walk to places w/in reason, eat/shop local, literally unplug everything when not in use, I’m still always thinking of how I could make a smaller impact on the earth. After all, we only have one.
3.The way I treat my family. My siblings (& hayes) are my bffs, & I’d do anything for my parents- so happy with how they raised us. Even though we’re all in our 20’s w/separate lives, we still have dinner at my rents house once a week.
4. I do love my hair! haha, but honestly, I don’t even take care of it the way one should. I trim it myself- I just go across my bangs in a straight, uneven line! & to get the wave look, I literally live in one long braid.
5.This one, bah, I can’t say those things about myself! I mean, I have an amazing life, just some money trouble here & there, but really nothing to complain about, hence my positive posts, so I’m glad how I live can inspire!
today’s outfit was brought to you by floral with a statement necklace. that’s probably the trend i love most- button ups, because hayes & i are the same shirt size, so i have twice as many shirts to choose from; and statement necklaces are just fun!
mr chubbs feels lost now. oh well! they had a good run while it lasted. this housing situation was only temporary anyway.
this guy. he’s so small, but he loves to play fetch. so my mum found these tiny tennis balls for him! i laugh every time i look at his compared to the normal size ones eleanor uses.
we said goodbye to mumford (no sons) this morning. we dropped him off two towns over at a nice home with a little girl who loves cats and will give him plenty of attention.
my little brother & his gal adopted him back in 2010. but they broke up & neither wanted him, so he went to live with my parents, but that didn’t last long since my dad HATES cats. i didn’t want him to end up in a shelter, so he came to live with us (along with mr. chubbs at that time, since he lived with my parents too & my dad was like, may as well live cat free now!) Mumford (no sons) never got along with our pups, he’s too laid back. so he was always hiding in our house, or escaping outside- which would have been fine, like yeah sure, be an outdoor cat, except it sucked cos he would always come home a few hours later infested with fleas/ticks. he was a nice cat, but we just weren’t the right fit for him.
so mr. chubbs & him said goodbye this morning, and he met his new family. i told them if it doesn’t work out, they need to give him back to us, because even though we don’t click, i could never, ever see him put in a shelter.
**now if anyone is looking for a maine coon cat to take home, we have one, free of charge! includes carrying case, cat food & litter! (he’s pretty cool, it’s just that truman burbank & eleanor zissou don’t like cats, so our house is really loud when they meet up in the hallway/living room/kitchen..)
at the end of march i went on a liquid diet for a while just to get my body back to neutral…

I love my Boston Bruins & Claude, but this put a smile on my face!
