  1. Hi Debbie,
    Where did you get your information about the Musketeer hat? I am doing a dissertation on 1920s fashion and literature. In The Great Gatsby, Daisy wears what is described as a ‘three cornered hat’ and I am looking for some more information about this.

  2. Hi Debbie, i would like to know it’d be possible to know when this article was written, i’m using your article as a source for a paper.

  3. Hi Debbie! I think I may have been born in the wrong era, because I absolutely would have loved to live and thrive in the late 1800’s into the early 1900’s! I will just have to settle for being born in 1981, and keep dreaming I live at Highclere! Lol I was actually wondering if you could help me with something special for my daughter Emily who is turning ten in October. She has asked for her birthday this year to go to the Tea Room. It’s a beautiful Victorian house themed and decorated perfectly to bring visitors back in time. We will enjoy a 5 course tea and luncheon. All of the woman in the family will be present each wearing their best in oldest fashion. I was hoping for some pointers for dress for Emily and myself for our outing. I have searched through your site and gathered too many ideas! I would like to keep it simple, or moreless wear similarly what would have been worn during those times for tea:) Any help is much appreciated!! Thank you!
