where is the Worth Collection? There's only a couple when I click on Worth. Thanks, this site is beyond fastastic. Thanks so much for putting up. Kathy Anonymous

There’s something strange going on with the tags.  Hopefully Tumblr will sort things out.

I don't know if that's what happened to your tags, but for some reason tags with hyphens don't work anymore from the homepage of blogs and can only be reached from the dashboard search. For instance if you tagged something "1740-1750" the oldrags*dot*tumblr*dot*com/tagged/1740-1750 url isn't going to work :/ typical tumblr shenanigans... bidonica

Guh that sucks.  Hopefully they’ll fix it.

Could you please give us a little more information of this portrait? "Portrait of Mlle Brissac by William-Adolphe Bouguereau, 1863 France." darkdawns

The painting itself exists in a private collection and is oil on canvas.  I don’t know exactly who the sitter is, but the Brissacs were a French noble family from Anjou.

Do you know any good sources for descriptions and images of jewellery from the 1800s? ashleepond

I don’t, actually.  Does anyone know of any?

Is there a reason this blog has just European styles? I'd love to see a history of WORLD dress, and it seems the focus is too narrow. blackjackgabbiani

Because that’s what I’m interested in.

I absolutely love your blog! I'm particularly interested in clothes from 1740-1750. The URL seems to be down for those dresses, on your blog. urieka-deactivated20130327

I noticed that some of my tags aren’t working anymore and I’m not sure why. :/ Anyone know what to do?
