[ - ] Do NYC private schools (or any privates) give near full FA in kindergarten? 1 Reply [ Reply | Watch | More ]
General Topics 03.28.15, 03:46 AM Flag

Not impossible, but pretty close. Small number of FA spots overall. Of those, first they go to siblings of kiss already at the school. Then to kids of staff/faculty if school gives a preference to those families. Then of remaining FA dollars, they have to decide whether to give say 30% aid to three families or almost full aid to one family. It happens but apply broadly and make sure you have a back-up.

Western Fashion. It starts in the mid 18th century (it's mostly French, court dresses, robe ala francaise and robe a la polonaise). Then you have the 1790s - 1820s (not nearly as much from this time period), early Victorian era, and late Victorian era (this was her favorite). When I was younger I had my own obsession with Marie Antionette and so I had a little collection of clothing from that era. My mother has dresses, shoes, jackets, clothing, undergarments, dressing gowns, corsets, costume jewelry, hair, etc. The bulk of it is 1880s-1900 and you actually have to be corseted to fit into half of it, but a lot of the less accurate stuff she purchased from films and such comes in handy for costume parties and honestly, sometimes I just like to try things on.

People were shorter and smaller, but she had mostly replicas (her genuine pieces are an entirely different story, she donated most of that). The collection is a bit of an assortment, but most of it I could fit into if I genuinely tried but I prefer the 18th century because the stays are a lot easier. [ Reply | More ]
