Fashion belts and prayerbooks! Those ubiquitous belts and patterened material are so indicative of the 1850s. Three girls couldn't be more dear than these.

An halo of braided hair! Bare shoulders must have seemed very erotic in the 1840s and 50s. This young woman's face and shoulders are lovely. She wears no jewelry and her eyes are so alert.

"We have a really cool way of tying a big scarf, let me show you." A sweet girl from the 1840s. I like the tiered sleeves on her dress.
