Wondering what to wear today?
I’m reading Suetonius on Caligula’s fashion sense – an embroidered and precious stone encrusted cloak at public appearances with silk and women’s dresses teamed with military boots or women’s shoes.
“Often he affected a golden beard and carried a thunder bolt, trident, or serpent-twined staff in his hand. He even dressed up as Venus and, even before his expedition, wore the uniform of a triumphant general, including sometimes the breastplate which he had stolen from Alexander the Great’s tomb at Alexandria.”
