Clothing Exhibit

I think I'm mysteriously drawn to them. Or they appear in my vicinity. Or something. Anyway, these were on display when we were in Cambridge a week ago. About a hundred years of women's clothing. The watered silk was more lavender than it appears. I love the detail on the bustle dresses. So much fun.
