Josefina’s Birthday is today, according to the AG Wiki, so let’s celebrate with another photoset showcasing her birthday outfit! According to her book, the shoes were hand-me-downs from Clara and the shawl and fan belonged to her mother. I love it when the outfits have a back-story to them.
Happy 197th birthday, Josefina!
Happy Birthday, Josefina!

(I remember someone once left a comment somewhere that Mariana in the 5th picture was actually doing something that was a huge cultural taboo for her, but a small edit was all that it needed in order to fix it. She never specified what exactly was the taboo, so the question of what was the taboo has pretty much been haunting me :[ )
