Victorian women (and those of the eras before) had fans not only to provide them with fresh air in the hot summer months, but also to hold bad odours at bay – and to communicate.
Whichever way a woman used her fan, it communicated a message to acquaintances, lovers and admirers. It is such a romantic thought and so incredibly feminine to use such a pretty accessory for this.
When I imagine a woman with a fan, it is always, without fail, a proud, self-assured, radiant woman who knows what she wants. She communicates it. And gets it. This is poise. It cannot be imitated. It is her being her.
It is you being you. This is something all women need. Whenever I look at it, my spine stretches a little bit taller, my chin lifts a little bit higher and I am taking a little bit more space to communicate what I want and I need.
This is what I want for you!
