An Antique Photo of Victorian-Era Bride Wearing a Sweet Silk Dress

When hunting through piles of antique photographs at flea markets, I often find images that are over 100 years old. However, it is not often that I find images that display fashion history that is relevant to today’s trends. When I saw the sleeves on the wedding dress in this photograph, I melted.

Hello! I am the blogger at Faedra! Faedra is my scrapbook and my space to explore the stories of the vintage objects I treasure. I was raised by antique dealers, roaming thrift stores and antique markets and discovering beautiful abandoned objects. To embrace a life full of vintage treasures is to fill one’s home with creativity and stories.

At Faedra, I explore vintage stories and revel in their beauty. Welcome!
