This appears to be Prince Fushimi Hiroyasu (1875-1946) and Princess Tokugawa Tsuneko (1882-1939).
I actually have no idea what type of shoes women would have worn sailing. Does anyone know?
That’s a little vague because it covers the period from 1547 to 1721 or 1917. You could check out my Russia tag for ideas. Wearing Russian ethnic or court dress might be ideal.
“Bunch of sweet peas” fancy dress, 1896 England, Fancy Dresses Described by Ardern Holt
(See Illustration No. 42.) The skirt of the rasse terre length, is made of white satin, and so is the full bodice, both entirely covered with sweet-pea stalks, tied in a bunch at the side, to form the girdle. The flowers border the top of the bodice and constitute the sleeves, and a pretty satin hat is fashioned after the form of the flower. Long gloves are ruffled on the arm, sweet peas figure on the fan, and black shoes and white silk stockings complete the costume.
New Woman fancy dress, 1896 England, Fancy Dresses Described by Ardern Holt
(See Illustration, Fig. 29.) She wears a cloth tailor-made gown, and her bicycle is pourtrayed in front of it, together with the Sporting Times and her golf club; she carries her betting book and her latch-key at her side, her gun is slung across her shoulder, and her pretty Tam o’ Shanter is surmounted by a bicycle lamp. She has gaiters to her patent leather shoes, and is armed at all points for conquest.
This girl CAN. NOT. BE. STOPPED!!
