Filthy Victorians: I hate this blouse

OK, perhaps 'hate' is too strong a word, but it certainly makes me feel clownish as opposed to darkly elegant and will be going in the eBay bag! However I do like this outfit; I will be sure to try it with a different blouse next week...



Again this is Victorian-inspired instead of fully Victorian; but I feel very odd with so little make-up on and my hair up! I'm not sure whether or not I like it.

The skirt is a vintage find; the boots are from Peacocks; the rest of the outfit I found in charity shops. Oh, and the headband is from Poundland.

Blech.

That skirt is positively gorgeous. Actually I quite like the frilly shirt, too! I really need to find a vest. Er, waistcoat. ;D

Oh my, you just reminded me that I have a few e-bay bags full with pieces just waiting to be love again. I should get to that soon.

Your outfit is lovely. Even if you feel clownish in it that blouse you manage to look very elegant.

I love your look. It all works so well together. It looks different but good. :)

Your blouse is lovely; it works well with the outfit and the Victoriana theme as a whole.

I LOVE that blouse with the waistcoat! Although I can see how you'd feel clownish wearing it, but you do look elegant.

lol! I have a burgundy dress that always makes me think of the exact same adjective: clownish! Funny enough, it has a very similar ruffle on the neckline and sleeves, but crocheted. It looked amazing in the Newport News catalog, but looks kinda comical in real life...

However, your blouse is not at all clownish from where I'm standing. In fact, the whole outfit is romantic and elegant. And I love your hair up (or down - it suits you both ways).

Are you kidding?!
That's an awesome blouse! I've actually been looking for one like that. Try tucking the bottom of the blouse into the skirt if you don't like how it looks.

Try closing up the neckline with a few saftey pins or small brooches.That might take away a bit of the clown feel. Also, adding and additional collar to it could make for some epicness.

A Victorian makeup tip for you. It's French so technically of La Belle Epoch but the same time period. According to her biography, Madame Amélie Gautreau, the subject of John Singer Sargent's Portrait of Madame X, used rice powder to affect her pale and ethereal complexion. It can still be had in Chinese beauty supply stores. Madame Geautreau was considered the most beautiful and scandalous woman in Paris during the 1880s. See the painting for some strapless inspiration.

I actually really like that blouse, but perhaps the problem is that you're showing too much of it rather than it looks clownish?
