REVIEW: This book covers the accessories that women have used over the past 150 years, some pieces dating back even earlier to 1820, like a parasol from the Jackson-Decatur debates. A glimpse into the closets and trunks of the author, a private collector for over 30 years, reveals many parts of ensembles of ladies from the past.
