Mourning Is Becoming In Electric Blue

By the end of the First World War, conventional widow's weeds were falling out of style. Women no longer wore dark veils or wore black for an entire year. Some time spent in mourning was still to be expected; in addition to black, other colors such as purple, lavender, and white were also colors of mourning.

Note the prices on each gown, that was a good month's salary at the time.
