Project Sister Act – Victorian Romance

December 23, 2016

This month, I was asked to participate in Project Sister Act, a style blogger collaboration between bloggers of different ages to prove that style is indeed ageless.  This month’s theme:  Victorian Romance!

Sheela of Sheela Writes created Project Sister Act and had this to say about it,  “Project Sister Act is a little endeavour bringing together five women ranging from teens to 50s, united in showcasing that style knows no age boundary. That style is indeed an expression of one’s personality, no matter if one’s a product of the 70s or 90s. And that the one same motif can be stylish on any and every woman, regardless of the year she was born.”

Here are this month’s participants:

    I adore your spin on this style prompt. Victorian is a favorite of mine but not if it’s too fussy or costumy. Your top has just the right amount of Victorian detail and still looks modern. The collaboration with the other ladies is great. Thank you for adding your post to my Fine-Whatever link up.
