Continuing my series of Friday posts about interesting blogs or websites today, I’m going to talk about TWO NERDY HISTORY GIRLS. This blog is owned and operated by Loretta Chase, who writes historical romance, and Susan Holloway, who writes historical novels.
What makes this site stand out are the wonderful pictures of historical clothing. Monday’s post was about a symposium hosted by Colonial Williamsburg, titled More from Accessories, showing the wonderful embroidery on the collars and sleeve ruffles that women wore in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

Friday’s post featured a cherry-red ball gown from 1830. Every Sunday, Loretta and Susan provide Breakfast Links, which showcases other websites and blogs of interest. Browsing here over a cup of milky coffee is a real treat and has become my highlight of the week.
