Ladies Day Out Postcard

This is my "Fashion" postcard entry for this weeks' Sunday Postcard Art challenge. I've been in a vintage mode this week and continued it here with this Victorian digital collage. The background and ladies images are from Dover and the shoe/brand image is from The Graphics Fairy. I had fun painting and altering the background image (storefront and street) with a glowing edges filter and added digital text.
I love the very feminine styles of this period (sure wouldn't work today) but at the same time seem so impractical even back then; and most of the high fashion wear we see coming down the runway today (still impractical) - we never see in our daily lives- but it can be enjoyed from an artistic perspective that is both creative and evocative.

  2. Wow! This one blows me away. It is stunning and so creatively crafted. I love the fashions of those times but they must have been very uncomfortable! The colours and background are wonderful.
