    I'm a big fan of the whole era myself! I found myself really liking Walter Pater, John Stuart Mill, Ruskin, Kipling, etc. I think my all-time favorite poem (besides Keats' "Lamia") is William Morris' "Haystack in the Floods". I'll have to post it to my blog.

    I even got a big hate-on for Thomas Carlyle because he was a total jerk and kept picking on Charles Lamb (who I see as a very kind, sensitive man). Can't deal with Swinburne either. He gives me the creeps.
    Swinburne? Eekers.

    Give me a heads up when you post the Morris.

    I guess the top picks for me would be the Medieval period and/or the Romantic age(1800-1850). After that, probably the two World Wars.

    If I have this option I think that I would do something much more radical then what the others suggested.

    For sure.

    Basically everything about that time period is appealing to me.

    This is so funny to me. I remember my mom wearing shoulder pads and red lipstick. Platforms and nylons with seams in the back.

    As most style does, in about twenty years, in the 70's, that look came back for a while. Bette Midler was a big deal right then and did a lot to promote it, camp-like.

    I bought a suit with a peplum on the jacket, platforms, shoulder pads and I felt like a little girl playing dress-up in my Mom's clothes.

    When Mom saw me she asked why I was wearing such out-dated clothing!
