a couple of weeks ago i discovered the show penny dreadful. since then i’ve been slightly obsessed. there are so many wonderful things in that show, among which are the costumes. oh, the costumes. i would take screenshots of all of them, but netflix won’t allow me. they sparked a renewed interest in me in victorian fashion. victorian fashion was one of the goth clichés that i had moved away from, forgotten how fabulous it could be. anyway. of all the characters i think vanessa ives has the best wardrobe. here are some examples i plucked from google:
i can’t stop looking at the detail on this blouse. i think it’s one of her finest pieces.
nice modern addition of polka dots in this dress. the gold dots on the black look fantastic.
i hope you enjoyed this post! thank you for looking.
