Terms used during the period — such as undress, half dress and full dress — will be explained and illustrated with prints. Popular types of outerwear will also be showcased, including pelisses, spencers, and mantles.. The general evolution of style will also be discussed, including changing waistlines, hemlines, and bonnets.

Candice’s presentation uses lots of images of beautiful fashion prints from the ladies’ magazines of the period. She will also have on hand examples of individual issues of some of those magazines.
