Evening Dress 
1916
Lucy Christina Wallace
Dress characterized by pale colouring and delicate decoration. The skirt section is three-layered, with the front opening of the overskirt giving glimpses of a large number of decorations in tulle and lace patched together, with silk satin ribbons and flowers.
 As a result of World War I, fashion turned rapidly in the direction of simplicity. However, many women still longed for the decorative, traditional styles, providing a clientele for Lanvin and Lucile. This dress exudes that nostalgic feminine atmosphere, but the length is short enough to show the ankles, signalling the new age.

I like how diverse Masonic lodges are. Some of them look like Greek or Egyptian styled temples, some are painted to resemble the heavens or night sky, and others just look totally out there. 

This makes me miss the Masonic Temple we held our Rainbow Girls meetings at. It’s ceiling was a starry landscape and was really cool to sleep under during special events.

Magi Spoilers (Chapter 233) and Cultural InterpretationsThe recent Magi chapter made me realize, “Uh-oh! Ithnan, Falan, and Wahid represent the three ruffians from the tale of Hiram Abiff and Solomon’s Temple.”
I won’t go in-depth about the tale, as you’re suppose to learn it while going through the rituals of Freemasonry. But if you don’t mind spoilers, you can ask a Mason. (Custom dictates that they can talk to you about their society, but you have to be the one who initiates the conversation. I learned it from my late father, who was a Master Mason.)
Anyways, this became especially apparent when Falan says:


"And we are not "equal" at all, aru…. Sheba, Ugo, Arba… The three of you have become special beings that are able to receive magoi not only from the rukh from inside yourselves, but also from the rukh around you, aru. We’re not the same anymore, aru."


Now I’m concerned for the safety of Solomon’s Magis, especially Ugo.
