Ambrotypes Detachable Collars

 
My latest article is up on the Sync website if you're interested in reading. I wrote about ambrotypes and the beginning stages of photography with a tidbit about the Crinoline period included, too. I was so inspired by this lady's detachable collar and the bold print on her dress.  I was able to recreate the look with a silk blouse that I've been trying to wear for months and a pretty detachable collar. I could never figure out how to wear the shirt until I found this photo. Anyway, don't want to spoil the article. You can read here if you'd like.

Congratulations to Callie of Callie Gets Skinny. You win the lion necklace from the Cleo Chrysanthemum giveaway!

that recreation is uncanny. the old photograph is creeping me out a little bit (they usually do). but it's very cool!

Oh, you look so beautiful! I love how you used the antique photo for inspiration - the look you recreated is just gorgeous. I've owned a small collection of antique detachable collars for a long time and always buy them when I see them, but am only just now experimenting with how to actually wear them. This is absolutely lovely inspiration. :)
