Post subject:  Visiting Versailles in period dress, would you dare?

I just posted this on the french forum but I thought I'd like to hear your opinions as well!

Would you dare to visit Versailles in a dress to the style of MA's? Not the BIG dresses but something more subtle like a dress à la Polonaise?

I'd love to do it but I would be afraid people would make fun of me or ask me to pose for photographs or suchlike.

I don't have such a dress (yet!!) but still I wonder if I'd have the courage?

Would you? Or have you done it? Let me know, thank you!!

Hi Fabienne, you're on the French forum then? Me too.

I know that there are peole on the Frenh forum that do visits in 18th century dress. They did the MA exhibition! And they do a lot of special costumed days at Vaux le Vicomte and other chateaux.

Interesting to hear that people went dressed up to the MA exhibit! Are there any pictures of that?

It's good to know I wouldn't be alone in wanting to do that.

Wouldn't this be a great forum outing? A visit to Versailles dressed up?

I didn't know about the special costumed days at Vaux le Vicomte and other Chateaux. Is there some information online about this?

And yes, I'm on the french board as well!

But of course! I can just imagine walking around in a blue or flea colored outift all around versailles, and through the gardens!

I don't think I would do it alone, but I would with a friend! It's so nice.

In fact, they should enforce it!!!

All people would gather around you to take a picture but I don’t think thats so bad. It could be quite interesting. :angel3:
