Description

This article talks about holiday dances that have been thrown in young ladies’ honor. One of the girl’s parties was said to be thrown at Sherry’s. These dances were a big social gathering for many of New York’s elites. This article ties into The House of Mirth nicely because social venues were a major part of the novel and a reason why Lily died in the end. Lily would have loved to be featured in an article as such.
