My Regency Accessories

Here they are, the promised photos of the reticule and handkerchief I purchased at the Jane Austen Festival in July. 

My new Reticule with basket bottom. I greatly admired this style last year and am so pleased to have one of my own now!

The reticule has plenty of room for the fan I purchased at the Festival last year and the handkerchief. It might also fit an iPhone or camera perfectly for easy photo taking.

Fan I bought last year - it really came in handy this year in the hot weather!

Pretty blue butterfly detail on the handkerchief.

My Regency collection is building! The goal for next year is to have a dress to wear. ;)

What color dress would you pair these items with?

Those are beautiful! I would think a pale or rose pink dress would work well, but I am not very fashionable. My sister-in-law had a regency themed wedding- maybe I should ask her.

I think it would go beautifully with a deep pink or wine colored dress. I did make me a regency gown a few years ago. I just need to do some adjustments on it. Do you know of anywhere that you could purchase the shoes, leggings, and such? I made my own chemise and corset. I love to make stuff like that.

The reticule, perhaps a mauve or burgundy dress. A yellow would be lovely with the fan.

Oh how pretty! :)

I think a rose colored dress or blue would look good.

Would you use the reticule for an 'everyday' purse?

Mmm...something pale blue and white would be very pretty with the fan. :) Thank you for sharing - I love your new accessories!

Gorgeous reticule! I agree with pale blue, but then I am partial to blue. Love your blog.

I love the reticule. I really want to make myself a basket reticule this year. Not only are they beautiful, but it seems like they would support the weight of a camera or phone better than a traditional reticule. I think that a light brown with a soft red or pink pattern would be pretty with the accessories.
