Lol Men may not agree, but it’s hard on most ladies when they’re left to their imagination where the clothing is concerned. Especially in historical novels. So I’m going to do you a favor and let you peek inside Claire Harper’s wardrobe. Some of the following pictures were real pictures that I had in mind as I wrote a scene and others are just great examples of what I imagined her wearing.
Claire is a woman with a grand imagination. Her means don’t always meet her thoughts though. She’s caught in several scenes daydreaming. Here are the dresses that I used as inspiration for 2 such scenes.
The reality is, Claire’s home life doesn’t require or afford her with so many fancy dresses. Here are the dresses that she’s found wearing in some of the pages of the book. The red plaid is mentioned by name while the others may be taken more as a likeness of what she would be wearing.
The one night of the year that Claire could count on wearing something stunning would be the Christmas Ball. The made-over hunter green gown in mentioned in several scenes in both novels. I couldn’t find a green gown, but this is an accurate style that I had envisioned for Claire. The main color is hunter green and the bottom is a cream color.
Since Pinterest shopping is free and fun, I took Claire out to pick a few other dresses so we can get a better glimpse at her personality through her choices. I often imagine her in deep colors like the hunter green or deep purple as her model is wearing at the top of this post. Here are some other Claire picks.
I hope you enjoyed taking a peek inside Claire’s wardrobe. Is there a dress here that you’d love to borrow?
