If you don't - okay, you probably loathed this post with the passion of a thousand corseted women. If you do - you probably want to subscribe to the Period Films tumblr (where I got all these images, obvs.).
Also - I'm glad that I live right now - 2011 - but sometimes I wish people got hardcore dressed up all the time. I want to wear gowns. I want to wear corsets. That's right - corsets. Maybe not all the time, but half the time. In college I was in 3 plays that involved corset wearing, and I enjoyed it immensely.
