What’s a “half-mourning” dress? Mourning in the front, party in the back?
Half-Mourning was the third stage of mourning for a widow. She would be expected to mourn her husband for at least two years, the stages being Full Mourning, Second Mourning and Half-Mourning. The different stages regulated what they would be wearing, with Full Mourning being all black and with no ornamentation, including the wodow’s veil, and the stages after that introducing some jewellery and modest ornamentation. When in Half-Mourning you would gradually include fabrics in other colors and sort of ease your way out of mourning.
Wow, I am happy you made that joke so I could interpert it as a serious question and have an excuse to ramble on about clothing customs of the past, I am a historical fashion nerd.
That’s very informative, but I’m going to stick with my original head canon:
I love both the informed fashion history and the hilariously off-the-wall halves of this post.
UGH this is fucking beautiful
This is well done.
well, this is now my favorite video ever

i think it’s all out of my system now
Neck is getting better (finally)!
Also, I have no idea how this even happened. Just woke up Thursday morning unable to turn my head or bend down without a shooting pain down my neck into my back. Guuuuhhhhhhhh. oAo
Day 2 of not being able to turn my head up, down, or to the left.
I would like the use of my neck again, please.
I also don’t appreciate the pain shooting down my back. Just sayin.
