Inside Marie Antoinette's Closet

Today I went to the museum in Naha, Okinawa. They often have art showings or artist displays from all over the world. For the past few months they have been displaying Marie Antoinette's personal art gallery of pieces that were gifted to her & pieces she paid her artist to create. Unfortunately picture taking of her collection was not allowed. There were all kinds of drawings of her life at Versailles, King Louis, her children, her family, etc. There were jewelry pieces, buttons, fabrics, coins, & other dauphine related items. Luckily I was allowed to take pictures of her outfits! Her ball gown was my absolute favorite of all of the dresses (which I will display next post as I am tired from being out all day!). It's so elaborate & screams gorgeous. Also look at how tiny her waist was!!! I envy!!
