    I love lady’s hats too. I love to see what the English ladies are wearing. My mom used to be a sales rep for a hat company years ago and has some pretty hats yet. They are always fun to look at. Thanks for the opportunity!

    I don’t really have a particular current or past fashion. I think everyone has particular things that look good on them and are “timeless”. For me, it’s about comfort (and most anything purple…haha).

    I love the beautiful puffy dresses especially the wedding dresses with long trains. Thanks for the chance to win.

    I loved reading A Lady in Disguise!
    The roaring 20’s fashion fascinates me, specially women’s short dress and headbands!

    I love the dresses and also the hats. I’ve been wearing dresses a lot more often, they are so comfortable.

    The Victorian era is one that I have been interested in over the years. In fact, I am currently watching a 3 part series on Queen Victoria’s children!

    What easily comes to mind is a current fashion I’d like to see disappear… man rompers! 😝

    For women’s fashion, I’d like to see the simple lines of mid-century fashion come back. Knee length, a-line dresses are adorable in their modesty and so feminine.

    i love the idea of long elegant dresses. lots of satin and lace!

    I would love to see the Chanel style suits and jackets come back into style again. I still have one and wear it often. I too love hats and had dozens of them. Perhaps that is the appeal of your books – I feel se have lost so much of what was good in our lives when we allowed “the slob” look to intrude and finally become the latest fashion.

  13. Shantelle Mary
    on May 23rd at 3:08 pm

    I would love if we still all dressed like in the 40s/50s. I just love the femininity and elegance of their clothing! Full-skirted dresses, pumps, bouncy curls, and red lipstick. ^_^

    Also, I love hats too! I always look at pictures of Princess Kate, and the like, enviously, because they look so natural and fashionable in those lovely hats! 🙂

    Thanks and blessings!

    I d love to see a return to handwritten letters, cards, etc. Thank you notes or newsy letters that come in the hand delivered mail … A slowing down to take the time means a lot to the one who receives it.

    on May 23rd at 3:17 pm

    I’m definitely with you on the hats. They are a beautiful accessory. So many styles. I love the big hats with flowers or the Fedoras. I also loved the Edwardian blouses and dresses I wore in the 70’s. So feminine.

    Oh goodness, I wish we could wear dresses for more frequent occasions again – especially in the elegant, very feminine late Medieval and Regency styles.

  17. Vicky D
    on May 23rd at 3:31 pm

    I love seeing how creative people can be with scarves!

  18. Amanda Holmes
    on May 23rd at 3:38 pm

    I wish the 1950’s Audrey Hepburn style dresses would come back! I love the full skirts.

  19. Kim Potter

    I love hats and gloves.

  20. Elizabeth Cox

    I hope this comment applies, I love 40’s style shoes. I hope they come back in soon.

  21. Sabrina Templin

    One of my favorite current fashions is crocheted and knitted embellished items or crocheted or knitted completely.

  22. Anne
    on May 23rd at 4:35 pm

    dresses and skirts from the 1950’s were feminine, swirly and lovely. i enjoyed wearing them and wish that they were back in fashion. The colors, prints, styles and beautiful shoes were delightful and so special.

  23. Cheryl Olson
    on May 23rd at 4:58 pm

    Funny thing is I was just in “My Fair Lady ” at a local community theatre and loved the Ascot scene with the big fancy off the hook hats! We even had to use the big hat pins to keep them on and I felt oh so fancy, so I’m going to have to go with big fancy hats as my fashion choice that I wish would be a part of our fashion these days 🙂

  24. Jessica Dowell
    on May 23rd at 5:07 pm

    I love maxi skirts and dresses. I feel so elegant and comfy at the same time! 🙂

  25. Cíntia
    on May 23rd at 5:08 pm

    I love hats too! Too bad that where I life is always too hot for that. I also would love to wear some of the fashion from the 50s, love those dresses with strong colors and the ponytails.

  26. Tracey Hagwood
    on May 23rd at 5:09 pm

    Hi Sandra,
    I love the beautiful long elegant dresses of the Victorian era (and further back) with a matching hat of course. It’s kind of funny coming from me since I haven’t worn a dress since my daughter got married 12 years ago! I think I look better in pants, but if I had one of those dresses from a hundred years ago, well, lets just say it would hide a multitude of flaws 🙂 Thanks for the lovely prize box opportunity!

  27. Paula S.
    on May 23rd at 5:16 pm

    I wish feminine flowy dresses that were flattering ( there’s an alliteration)! Spring colors , not too bright! I think I’ve read everything but your last book and hope to do so soon!

  28. Megan Scott
    on May 23rd at 5:18 pm

    I agree with a lot of others in that I wish we could wear elegant dresses more frequently. Thanks for the giveaway!

  29. Laura
    on May 23rd at 5:19 pm

    I love dresses from the 50s and 60s with the crinoline underneath. So fun!

  30. Joan Rye

    I am so looking forward to reading A Lady in Disguise!

    Swin Suits that actually cover your body. 40’s-60’s

  32. Debbie Austin
    on May 23rd at 5:29 pm

    I, too, love hats. And gloves. And the beautiful dresses …on other people. Personally I love white blouses with lace and flowy sleeves… And a pair of comfy jeans.

  33. Norita Bergmann
    on May 23rd at 5:29 pm

    I love the idea of dressing for dinner…so elegant!

  34. Sheila Moore
    on May 23rd at 5:31 pm

    I love the 50’s styles, so elegant. I would like to see hats and gloves come back in style. I wear gloves anytime, I kinda of make my own style regardless of the current trends, lol

  35. Joye I
    on May 23rd at 5:34 pm

    One of my favorite dresses to wear is the side wrap designed by Diane Von Furstenberg in the 1980’s.
    I have seen a few worn in this day and age. It is one of the few dress designs that looks good on all figure types. I hope it has a big comeback soon.

  36. gael
    on May 23rd at 5:34 pm

    Love lacy blouses with flowing skirts. Do love hats.

  37. Charisse Lewis
    on May 23rd at 5:34 pm

    Mid to late Middle Ages dresses for noblewomen and tunics for noble mem.I love the elaborate embroidery.

  38. Diana Guz
    on May 23rd at 5:34 pm

    A Lady in Disguise was wonderful! The Victorian age is so fascinating, thank you for taking us back there in your books, Sandra! Thank you for the amazing giveaway!

  39. Ann Badder
    on May 23rd at 5:35 pm

    Modesty seems to have gone out the window, I’d like modesty to come back in style.

  40. Ginger
    on May 23rd at 5:36 pm

    I never wear dresses, only pants. because of the comfort. However, I love the styles from the 1800s, the hoop skirts, cotton prints, but not bustles or corsets. Again, all about comfort. These older styles were so much more ladylike, beautiful.

  41. Judy grogan
    on May 23rd at 5:37 pm

    I don’t have a particular favorite although I do like muumuus

  42. Jasmine A.
    on May 23rd at 5:37 pm

    I think for current fashion my favorites are just jeans and t-shirts, no they don’t exactly make it on the runway, but then again neither would I…. I think my favorite fashion is the shirt dresses of the 1950’s and early 60’s, you know the ones, with the crinolines. Maybe that love comes from reading too many 1950’s Nancy Drew stories back when I was a kid in the late 90’s….

  43. Susan Cornwell
    on May 23rd at 5:46 pm

    I wish longer dresses and skirts were in style. It is hard to have elegant lines and flowing skirts when everything is so short. (I know, my 50 year old legs don’t look quite as elegant as they used to)

  44. Tina
    on May 23rd at 5:53 pm

    I love hats, but with few exceptions, I can’t wear them well, not the way they ought to be. If someone offered me Rose’s “boarding” hat from ‘Titanic’, I’d take it in a heartbeat though! And here I am in the hometown of the Kentucky Derby too, when ladies everywhere buy their Derby hats for the races. I love the styles of the Regency, Edwardian, and the 1920’s. It might be why – in one aspect – I love looking at Steampunk clothing. It might not be authentically period, but when you see some of the styles, it’s the closest to returning to a sense of romanticism that’s sadly lost.

  45. Meagan Pelletier
    on May 23rd at 6:01 pm

    I am totally on the same page as you when it comes to hats, Sandra. I have an extensive collection that I regularly wear even though most people probably find it pretty odd, lol.

  46. Linda McFarland
    on May 23rd at 6:03 pm

    I would love to see long, flowing dresses with hats and gloves. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  47. Gail Malane
    on May 23rd at 6:10 pm

    I would love to see the Regency style dresses come back into style. I also love the hair styles , purses and shoes from that time. Basically, everything, lol.

  48. Maria Babich
    on May 23rd at 6:19 pm

    My think women looked the best in the 40’s but some of the hats were over the top! When I see pictures of royal weddings in England I see those same looks again.
    Thanks for the giveaway! Fun coloring books!

  49. Danna
    on May 23rd at 6:26 pm

    Tea parties would be fun! Dressing up for them using the fancy tea cups and enjoying the finger foods.

  50. Kim
    on May 23rd at 6:26 pm

    I don’t really have a specific fashion I’d like to see come back but I wish we dressed more modestly.

  51. Ramona Cabrera
    on May 23rd at 6:37 pm

    I love hats also. I have several and do wear them on occasion. I definitely wear a big one during the summer while outside. But I also love pearls. Pearls, whether a strand or just a single pearl earring, are totally classy. They never lose their appeal. Granted, girls/young women of today don’t wear pearls like years ago, but at least they wear pearl earrings.

  52. Beverly Duell-Moore
    on May 23rd at 6:41 pm

    I’m so thankful we don’t have to wear corsets anymore! Some of the hats they used to wear were really something. I’m not sure if my head could hold one those with a bunch of flowers and feathers. Although, there were some beautiful hats back then.

  53. Winnie Thomas
    on May 23rd at 6:48 pm

    I’m not really a hat person, although I wish I looked good in them. I’m glad the hoops and full petticoats aren’t in style. I love long skirts, but I prefer them when they’re not full. They’re easier to sit down in that way.

  54. Elaine Folger
    on May 23rd at 6:55 pm

    I dress more now for comfort than fashion (yoga pants & tshirts) due to having a chronic illness. I do remember as a young girl that I wore miniskirts, granny heels, and long straight hair to be in style. I also remember my Mom wearing pretty hard whenever she went out.

  55. Elly
    on May 23rd at 6:59 pm

    I love the look of medieval gowns. But for me personally, I think I’d prefer a prairie-girl style; mid-calf gingham dress, bare feet, and a simple braid. Not sure I could stand the long sleeves though…

  56. Pam
    on May 23rd at 7:02 pm

    I love the regal looking gowns with the gloves and hats. Not that I want to wear one with a corset! A more modest dress code at that time for sure.

  57. Carolyn
    on May 23rd at 7:03 pm

    I also love hats and sometimes I wish I was a royal so that I could wear them all of the time.

  58. Kim Gregory
    on May 23rd at 7:05 pm

    Oh my, I loved this blouse that my husband bought me for our first Valentine’s Day together. It was a Gunne Sax in this gauzy material and it had this medallion in the lacy center of the chest piece. The sleeves were tight fitting with lace at the wrists. It was gorgeous. I even had my wedding gown designed after this blouse. I would love for that kind of romantic Victorian-type fashion to come back.

  59. Jaime Fipp
    on May 23rd at 7:29 pm

    Leg warmers! Is that silly?

  60. Evalina Spencer
    on May 23rd at 7:31 pm

    I love fashion that leaves something to the imagination. I also like fashions that display gracefulness.

  61. Darla
    on May 23rd at 7:32 pm

    you reminded me, I also usually long for the days hats come back when I see them in a period film/tv show. 🙂

  62. Robin in NC
    on May 23rd at 7:35 pm

    I miss empire waist dresses. They were comfortable but accentuated the bust line while hiding pudgy tummies.

  63. Jennifer Davis
    on May 23rd at 7:45 pm

    I would love for lace gloves to come back in fashion.

  64. Debrah Nash
    on May 23rd at 7:48 pm

    As a “Modern Woman”, though I am sure Gillian would say she was one as well, I appreciate the beautiful clothes they wore during the time of “A Lady in Disguise: I happily wear today my slacks and enjoy the freedom from a corset. I remember my dear grandmother dressing daily in her house dress and never without her “foundation” as well. She was born in the early 1900’s and the woman of her day would never consider getting dressed without all the correct undergarments. It makes me smile to think in all the years of loving her I never saw her in a pair of slacks. ‘what would Gillian think of the way some dress today? Hum!

  65. Marie
    on May 23rd at 7:56 pm

    love to see a woman in a dress, we should wear one more often.

  66. Beth Gillihan
    on May 23rd at 7:57 pm

    I love the fashions of the Victorian era.

  67. Stacey Dale

    I am partial to asymmetrical hemlines in dresses, skirts and tops.

  68. Pat Rzonca
    on May 23rd at 8:12 pm

    It is always fun to watch the royal weddings and see all the different hats .

  69. Debbie Clatterbuck
    on May 23rd at 8:17 pm

    I personally prefer longer dresses, so I wouldn’t mind some of the fashions of the 1800’s to come back, except the bustle and the hoop skirt. Silly contraptions. LOL

  70. Meg
    on May 23rd at 8:20 pm

    Hats are lovely and I wear them whenever the mood is there, the weather is rainy, or I have a bad hair day! 🙂 A fashion trend I would enjoy seeing come back would be galchos!

  71. Judy Tulloch
    on May 23rd at 8:22 pm

    I like comfortable clothes, preferably knits, the simpler and most comfortable the better. Never cared for hats or frills. Growing up we had to wear dresses or skirts to school and church. We didn’t wear slacks or jeans period. It was nice when we could wear them. I love wearing sleeveless empire knit dresses more than anything. Shear comfort. At home I can wear they braless, even more comfort.

  72. Candi Foster
    on May 23rd at 8:26 pm

    I like the dresses of the 50s too. So fun, and modest and darling!

  73. Kathleen Kelly
    on May 23rd at 8:46 pm

    I have to say that I am pretty comfortable in what I wear. Since I am retired, I like to wear lounge clothes, at least at home, I don’t want to look like one of those Walmart people, but I do love to be comfy.

  74. Marion
    on May 23rd at 8:56 pm

    I would love to see the 50’s fashions come back. Those poodle skirts were a lot of fun.

  75. Joan

    I wish the 40’s fashions would return.
    Joan

  76. Connie Fischer
    on May 23rd at 8:58 pm

    I love to see women in full skirts and form fitting bodies, a la the 1950s timeframe. Feminine says it all.

  77. Marilyn
    on May 23rd at 8:59 pm

    I would love to wear the Victorian fashions. It would be great if they came back in style. I can dream!

  78. Barb

    I’ve been watching Call the Midwife and have been enjoying some of the 60s fashions they’ve worn.

  79. Angela Robinson
    on May 23rd at 9:27 pm

    I’m not that into fashion but I do love how ladies use to dress in the 1940s. 🙂

  80. Caryl Kane
    on May 23rd at 10:09 pm

    I love the Regency era fashion. So feminine and gorgeous.

  81. Lisa

    I wish the hats and hair styles would come back 🙂

  82. Debra
    on May 23rd at 10:50 pm

    I love the 1940’s ladies fashion. Loved the series “Agent Carter”, her fashion was classic.

  83. Tonya
    on May 23rd at 11:12 pm

    I love, love, love long skirts and dresses. I guess because I am so tall, 5′ 10″, they are easy to wear and not so hard to find something that looks right. I also like a short sleeve jacket or cover up that I can switch out with many tank tops!

  84. Kathleen Garley
    on May 23rd at 11:15 pm

    I love the dress style from the Civil War era with the lace,ruffles and hoop skirts! Beautiful box of goodies! Hope I am the winner.

  85. Polaris Northstar
    on May 23rd at 11:31 pm

    I’m really loving all the brides we are seeing today!

  86. Cynthia St. Germain
    on May 24th at 12:22 am

    I think the hats and gloves ladies always wore. I have a friend who’s mother still were at hat when you go to church and for special occasions. It is something I think we should go back to.

  87. Susan Atkinson
    on May 24th at 12:35 am

    I love hats we just don’t wear them much anymore. Especially the big ones with the brims!

  88. Bailey
    on May 24th at 12:49 am

    I have recently begun wearing hats..I love the reto look. I’m hoping that the 1920’s/1930’s style dresses come back soon.

  89. Martha T.
    on May 24th at 1:03 am

    I like shawls.

  90. Cathy Elliott
    on May 24th at 1:07 am

    Hats are my choice, too. They can be so flirty & dress up any outfit in a winsome way. In fact, this year, my friend & I are giving another lady’s tea for my daughter’s birthday in September. We decided hats must be worn by all guests, including the birthday girl. Now we must decide whether to buy hats from which to choose, ask them to purchase a hat for the occasion, or…now here’s my latest idea…have all the fixin’s ready for them to make their own. Feathers & ribbon & discs & cabbage roses! Add a hot glue gun and voila…we’ll have a teapot full of laughs! Petit Fours & a cuppa, anyone?

  91. Raechel
    on May 24th at 1:13 am

    I agree with you – hats are so lovely and I wish they’d come back too! And the 1950’s dresses! 🙂

  92. Susan P
    on May 24th at 2:13 am

    I love to wear hats! My mom and I have been wearing them since I was little and now I have all three of my girls wearing them. 🙂

  93. Laurie
    on May 24th at 2:16 am

    I like that the woman in that era dressed formal and modest. They took the time to make sure they were dressed for the occasion and appropriately.
    I think the hats and pearl’s are a given and should never be out of style. 🙂

  94. Jackie Wisherd
    on May 24th at 2:25 am

    I like that tees can be worn in a dressy manor.Or everyday. When I was growing up girls didn’t wear so many tees but rather cotton shirts with buttons. I can think of lots of styles from the past that I hope do not come back…like the flared pant legs of the sixties and crinolines under full skirts.

  95. Tammy Wallace
    on May 24th at 3:11 am

    HATS for sure! My younger sister wore a hat everyday if 3rd grade. She had over 30 different styles hanging on her bedroom wall. She even had the permanent dent in her hair called “hat head”

  96. Una Ireland
    on May 24th at 3:27 am

    I love hats

  97. Judy Jordan
    on May 24th at 4:33 am

    I would love it if pajamas all day every day was a fashion statement. LOL!

  98. Kathleen E. Belongia
    on May 24th at 5:29 am

    30s comfortable day dresses

  99. Mary Preston
    on May 24th at 6:54 am

    I have always loved the fashions of the 1920’s . Especially the evening wear with the jewelled headbands. Minus any corsets of course.

  100. Diane Marceau
    on May 24th at 11:20 am

    Hats, hats and more hats. I also love dresses from the Victorian/Edwardian era.

  101. Anne
    on May 24th at 12:27 pm

    My favorite style of clothing would have to be the 40’s and 50’s styles. The outfits looked so classy!

  102. Ruth Moseley
    on May 24th at 1:00 pm

    I love the Victorian era! Beautiful skirts with jackets to match, parasols, flowers, hats… the list goes on and on. I have to mention also those beautiful flower gardens! I would love to wonder through several.

  103. Monica Albright
    on May 24th at 2:43 pm

    I love the lace up boots-I even wore white satin lace up boots with my wedding dress!

  104. Karen
    on May 24th at 4:54 pm

    Hats are also one of my favorites. Our Aunt Grace collected hats for many years and her collection was such fun! Have really enjoyed the “Daughters of Hampshire” series. They take me away to another place and time. Awesome! Thank you.

  105. Judy
    on May 24th at 5:00 pm

    I like the Victorian look. The lacy blouses with puffy sleeves and wide cuffs.
    Thank you.

  106. Ann Austin
    on May 24th at 8:51 pm

    I’d like to see higher cut necklines, and gentle pintucks, white cotton sleeves, pretty mother of pearl buttons, and lovely collars again.

  107. Carole Lehr Johnson
    on May 24th at 9:30 pm

    Lady in Disguise was a wonderful read! The fashion of that era is so lovely, but I have to wonder how comfortable it was …

  108. Diane Sallans
    on May 25th at 1:40 am

    I went to my niece’s wedding last Saturday and it was really hard to find a dress to wear – the long ones were very fancy and the others were often tight and short – and would have liked to find a light weight flowery dress that is below the knee so it would be comfortable.

  109. Penny J.
    on May 25th at 12:51 pm

    I love the Victorian period, and wish that Victorian dresses with bustles would come back in style. Or least give us the rare occasion to wear beautiful dresses as they had.

  110. Vicki Wurgler
    on May 25th at 2:00 pm

    I like the roaring twenties with the slip dress that has sequins and fringe. the long necklaces of pearls and headbands

  111. Kitty
    on May 25th at 3:30 pm

    I too love the hats! How fun it would be to dress up when we leave the house rather than wearing pajama pants or yoga pants all the time!

  112. Kimberly Derbes
    on May 25th at 8:27 pm

    I would love to see the dresses from the 1950’s and 60’s come back. With the gloves and hats. Elegant and feminine.

  113. Karen Rochon
    on May 25th at 8:51 pm

    Love hats too. Used to collect them and put them on the wall for decoration, especially the little pillbox type with the veil. Jackie O all the way.

    i miss the era of dressing to look nice….whether for church or work or school….come as you are seems to have morphed often times in sloppy or at Best uber casual….I loved the 40s and 50s!!

    I would love the Elizabethan style or the victorian style to come back…if not because it’s less pratical riding a bike etc. I would love the 50’s I’m a huge fan of Brigitte Bardot’s style and I love that she’s active for animal rights.

    I sent my granddaughter a picture of me today in a skirt in 1956. They were full and I liked them. Not too long and not too short.

    I saw a picture from 1915 of female students at my alma mater. They were wearing ankle-length skirts, boots, long-sleeved shirts with high collars, and longer coats that ended below their knees. Yes, they were fully covered, but I thought it was a VERY feminine look! Revealing as much skin as possible is NOT a sexy look…it only begs negative attention. I’d love to bring back this look from the early 1900s. It leaves men guessing!

    I also love hats. I miss when my mom would dress to go to town and nowadays people go in their pajamas. No pride in appearance anymore.

    Hello everyone! I want to thank you for your fun, interesting, and thoughtful comments. I read every single one and it made me feel like I know you so much better! I don’t respond to them all so I don’t mess up Renee’s random.org draw number. She drew… and our winner is the lovely Linda McFarland.

    Linda has agreed to send a pix of her with her prize when it arrives, and I’ll post it here. Don’t worry if you didn’t win – more fun coming up in the next few months, so stay tuned!
