Fashion@NYPL Blog

Today I found a fabulous blog that I had not encountered previously. It is a fashion related blog from the New York Public Library administered by Paula Baxter, who is the curator of the Art and Architecture collections there. She discusses an array of historically related dress topics, and then brings them into the present, and has recently featured subjects such as steampunk and presidential campaign fashions. I looked up Paula and found that she has written books on Southwestern Silver Jewelry and an Encyclopedia of Native American Jewelry. I love finding sibling blogs to Worn Through as they are few and far between.
