Road Trip! Death Becomes Her...

I had the Met's Death Becomes Her exhibit on my calendar as soon as it was announced. Victorian mourning attire, jewelry and accessories (as well as a few other goodies--prints, daguerreotypes and literary tidbits)? 

Yes, please. 

Death becomes her...
...though not always in black.
Photos were fashionable.
As were dramatic trains...
...and tiny waists--
--though not always.
Death becomes her.
