18th Century touches to a modern life

Per the challenge from Fuschia's 18th Century Dress blog, I have been seeking ways to incorporate 18th century style to my modern life, so one simple accessory is the fichu or neckerchief.  I have a pretty 1940's silk scarf a friend gave me this year for my birthday and so draped it in to my sweater neckline - which has a self knit ruffle around the neck.  There you go - a bit of 18th century in your life.

Thanks ladies. I have been racking my brain trying to think of ways to get 18th century dress bits and pieces into modern wear and not look costumey. So, share, share, share ideas. :)
