Fashion Through The Ages  
I went to the Powerhouse Museum and they had A Fashion Through the Ages exhibit. There were a lot of beautiful gowns with intricate deatail to patterns; and it made me wish that we could still dress like that. I imagine a world of Jane Austen with the extravagance of Marie Antoinette. Top hats and tailcoats. Lace gloves and silk. Minus the poverty, prejudice and harsh racism I'm pretty sure things would eventually work out.
I've been seduced by the thought of being swept up in a whirlwind romance with a byronic hero, where there's complex emotions, stubborness and sexual tension. Yes, I'm willing to go through the pain of crinoline, corsets and petticoats.

Cate Blanchett wore the long blue dress.
