Widow in White

Post by Karen on Sun 22 Apr 2012 - 1:09

WIDOW IN WHITE.
Mrs. J.J. Astor's Mother Thinks Black Costume Too Depressing.

Mrs. John Jacob Astor, who, at the age of nineteen, has been widowed by the Titanic disaster, will wear white instead of black as mourning for her husband.
Mrs. Astor wished to wear the deepest mourning, but Mrs. Force, her mother, believes she is too young to drape herself with black cloth and black crepe. So Mrs. Force overruled her daughter's wish, and ordered widow's weeds of white for her.
"The very colour of black is depressing," Mrs. Force told a friend recently, "and I do not consider a young girl like Madeleine should wear black crepe at a time when, with all her sorrow, her greatest joy is to come to her. White will have a better and more soothing effect upon her spirits and health, and seems to me to be far more appropriate for so young a girl."
