Bio: If you're reading this, you're probably semi-curious about history, culture and fashion, and wondering who the heck has been writing these wonderful pieces about yester-year and sartorial subject matter! 😉 Well, I have a BA in Social History, through Empire State College, and I'm a current student in the FANTASTIC Costume Studies graduate program at NYU Steinhart. Basically, I get to research and OBSESS over clothing & its inextricable link to culture seven days a week. When time, energy and sanity allows, I like to submit my findings to this lovely forum. Anyhow, I hope you enjoy some of the historical treasures that I come across in my studies. Mwah!
