I was stuck about whether to title this post "Off Focus" or "1830s Sleeves." As you can see, I ultimately chose the first option. I just got a new camera lens in the mail today that goes all the way to f/1.8. I'm super excited about finally having a lens that has such short depth of field, however this particular lens I ordered doesn't have auto-focus. Taking these photos was definitely a learning experience for both me and my photographer (*cough* my mom *cough*). Some of these photos may be a bit 'off focus' but over all I'm very satisfied with the results.
As I mentioned earlier, I almost titled this post "1830s Sleeves." So I know that most people would call these trumpet sleeves, and they are not wrong. However, I think these sleeves look like the style of sleeve that was popular in, you guessed it, the 1830s! It's currently one of my favorite decades to study because everything about the clothing, hair, and accessories were so frivolous. Below are some examples of sleeves from the decade, or you can check out my pinterest board for plenty more! So what do you think? Do you think my shirt has somewhat similar sleeves to ones from the 1830s? Tell me in the comments!
