Victorian Fashion: Toilette for the Soirée & Ball (La Mode Illustrée, January 5, 1873)

From my collection of La Mode Illustrée. Black and white illustration of two Victorian ladies dressed for a soirée and a ball, originally published in the January 5, 1873 issue of La Mode Illustrée. The ladies seem to be in deep discussion over a sheet of music - perhaps one of them will be performing at a concert that evening?
