Hairstyle Description: Long slightly curled bangs. The top and sides of her hair are pulled back and secured. The back of her hair is free flowing.

Costume Description: The sleeves of this costume are at that awkward length that is popular at this time frame. The collar is high and appears to have a brooch. There seems to be a fairly full bustle and a long over drapery on her skirt with flounces. There is a sash at the waistline and she is holding a nice fan.
