Worth a Thousand Words: Lady in Yellow Dress

The look on this lady's face is interesting. Is she disgusted? Tired? Sad? Bored? Self satisfied?

I liked this for that gorgeous yellow dress. But the look on her face is what I keep pondering.


  1. I think her feet are sore (I bet she's already taken her shoes off) and she's longing to get out of that corset and breathe properly. She really does look tired to me, though I may be projecting a bit.

  2. My mother insisted I wear this dress for my sister's wedding... can you believe it?
