Fashion Month ~ La Belle Assemblee ~ June 1818

Because I found it near impossible to transcribe the second fashion plate information I am only showing one from this month.

Mary queen of Scots hat, ornamented with pearls, and surmounted by a full plume of white feathers. Negligé necklace of fine pearls, and gold chain beneath, with an eyeglass suspended.
