The Purpose of this Blog

Each of my novels has its own blog. Why? Because sometimes, when reading a book, you end up with questions. Sometimes, you want to know certain background information about certain characters.

This blog is for Spellbound. Character specs and background info, family and old flames. This is the gossip blog. Enjoy!

Questions may be asked in a comment on a related post. Please try not to give too much away as some visitors may not have read the book yet. Thank you!

~Regency Fashion~ April 1820

This is a crossover post from my author blog. 

The fashion for April 1820:

Fashions for April, 1820. 
Explanation of the prints of fashion. 

No. 1--Evening Dress. 
Round dress of black crape, over a black satin slip; the dress made with a demi-train, and ornamented round the border with three fluted flounces of crape, each flounce headed by a superb embroidery of small jet beads and bugles. Corsage à Louis Quatorze, ornamented with jet bugles to correspond. Tucker of white crape in folds, fastened in puff divisions by bows of white love. The head adorned with the regal coronet turban.*
