Godey's Lady's Book, April 1864


Last Dance with Mary Jane

Victorian fashion, known for its uptight, proper style, was the height of elegance for women. But in 1864 one Victorian designer took the fashion a bit higher...

'Godey's Lady's Book' fashion magazine's, was one of the leading publications in Victorian fashion. In the April 1864 edition, they took fashion to the higher class.

The star of the 1864 magazine was an assortment of women's dress's. The focus of the dress's culminate with a white evening gown decorated with an interesting choice... Cannabis leaf's!

Accented throughout the design, cannabis leaves are placed to accent every part of the evening dress. The chest, sleeves and skirt all share in the leaf's motif.

The description given for the dress doesn't mention the designers higher intentions but leaves the leaf design to speak for itself.

There is little doubt, Mary Jane was the Bell of the Ball in 1864!

I think the Dervish is the guy with the animal pelt across his shoulders .
The Dervish is a form of Sufism . Whirling Dervish is a dance turning in circle to achieve a heightened state of mind . Cannabis is involved .

The other two guys look like straights from the city . Old mate is from up country .

Thanks for sharin

You are correct EB, had that one mislabeled. The Dervish give up all earthly possessions much like the Sadhu in India(although the sadhu are Hindu), hence the homemade look he's got going on

^ ^ They must have used some of that weed grown at Ole Miss to twist those. I’d say “No” to those too, lol.

Almost looks like they rolled some tobacco in a sheet of writing paper, twisted it up, snapped it in two and threw a bean in from one of their own sacks to make it look believable
