About this product
- DescriptionExcerpt from The Winning Lady: And Others Mrs. Adeline Wyatt stood before her l long mirror. She held a silver - framed hand-glass, and she surveyed her head crowned with a pretty toque at every possible angle. Adeline was always conscious of exercising stem heroism when she stood before her mirror. She spared herself thing. She looked unflinchingly at every crease in her chin, every crow's-foot about her eyes, every hollow in her cheeks, also the little sprays of marks, as if made by some tiny besom of time, beneath her ears. She faced the worst, and as far as possible, without the use of arts which she despised, she remedied defects. She practised before her mirror exactly the carriage of head and arrangement of hair which were most becoming.
