la mode illustrée
{circa 1886}

and so this blog begins!

la mode sapphique is a historical fashion blog dedicated to the fine art of “seeing lesbianism everywhere”. each image posted on la mode sapphique will be a vintage or antique womens’ fashion illustration, from a plate, pattern, or magazine. they will be captioned with creative writing and/or translations, when deemed necessary. 

this blog began back in 2010 as sapphicfashion, but was abandoned due to lack of interest.
