I have a beautiful photograph of a lovely young woman to share with you today. Her white dress is stunning with its multitude of ruffles. White stockings and shoes complete the outfit. A simple strand of pearls around the neck only adds to the delicate look.
Perhaps she is a graduate? The tassel around her arm and large, ribbon tied bouquet give us clues. And if you enlarge the photograph there is a small pin, or emblem, at the upper left side of her dress, perhaps from the school or university she attended.
There are no dates or names on the photo. I would date this 1910-1915.

It may be a sorority initiation portrait.
That’s a fan not a tassel.

You are correct!!
I bet it is a wedding gown. I have a picture of my Mother in her wedding gown n her first marriage and it was in early 1920’s and the bouquets and dress style are very similar especially flowers. My mother has a veil on.
Thank you! Not wearing a veil made me first think it was a graduation photo, but I now believe it must be her wedding photograph.
