Fopperies & Frivolities

A lady living in Philadelphia; an ex-pat, an occasional artist; an enthusiastic but unskilled cook; a vintage lover; an aspiring crafter. Things that make my heart flutter: top hats, old silver candlesticks, costumes, books, Victoriana, peacock feathers, masks, stockings, burlesque, feminism, retro pin-ups, kitsch, fantasy, sci-fi, and all manner of misfits and oddities.

I blog about my Russian heritage, steampunk, Sherlock Holmes (in his multiple modern variations), art, pretty clothes, pretty ladies, and whatever tv shows catch my fancy.

Macy’s holiday window display is apparently rather steampunk-inspired this year.

There is murmur among the steampunk community that the aesthetic is being co-opted, but honestly, I think these windows are lovely. It’s not the usual steampunk—it’s a fairy fantastical marionette take on the style, and I like what they’ve done with it.
