Fashion Date: Circa 1870-1874

Hairstyle Description: Her hair appears to be a cascade of large ringlets or waved hair pulled up at the side with a barrette.

Costume Description: This lady might be called a "painted lady" because of the amount of makeup she is wearing. I will leave that topic alone. Her dress has a round neckline and is accented by a dagged ruffle and a velvet ribbon that encircles the base of the neckline and ends in a bow at front.
