A map to a woman’s heart from the 1800s is still navigable today

What place did fashion hold in a woman’s heart back in the 1800s? Love may be right at the center, as depicted in this vintage map, but there’s a fair section dedicated to ‘love of dress’. Seems little has changed.

If the jewelry inlet leads directly to the drain of the purse, than the map could still be used to navigate my own heart.

This vintage gem – A Map of the Open Country of a Woman’s Heart – was created by D. W. Kellogg circa 1833–1842. View a close up of the fashion territory after the break.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
