Question: what stores (not online) sell Victorian style dresses?
i am looking for a store that sells Victorian (Marie Antoinette style) dresses. i have already looked online but i would like a store where i could and see them in person.
Answer: Antique shops will be the most likely possibility or specialist stores.
By the way, Marie Antoinette lived in the 18th century not the victorian era which was between 1837 - 1901, so there aren't any victorian dresses in Marie Antoinette style! However, the 'polonaise' (which was fashionable in the 1780s would have been worn by her at some point) did make a resurgence in the 1880s when the bustle reached preposterous proportions.

The Marie Antoinette film was directed and written by famous director, Sofia Coppola.
In this picture of Kirsten Dunst as Marie Antoinette, she is walking in the court of Versailles with her ladies in waiting following her trying to ignore comments and rumors about her husband.
