ride the ferris wheel with me

In history class today we talked about the Columbian Exposition of 1893 (World's Fair- which is what my outfit was inspired by), and I nearly died. It looked like it was so much fun (except for the murders of course)! Some of my favorite people (Mark Twain, Nikola Tesla, etc.) from history were there, too, so that makes it even better. For the first time the world saw Cracker Jack snacks, shredded wheat cereal, AND THE FERRIS WHEEL (which they never really tested until the fair started). Another great thing about this fair is that women started getting a little bit more recognition. They had their own building (appropriately called The Woman's Building), and women started doing stage shows, and being a part of the attraction. Go girls! Alright, my mini history lesson is over, so have fun (maybe even weep) at looking at the beautiful pictures below.

  3. I just wanted to say you remind me a lot of Linda McCartney sometimes. I hope you take that as a compliment. Lovely post. The Colombian Exposition is such a awesome thing to learn about (:
