A Lovely Young Lady (Mystery Photo #3) - Mystery Monday

(Digital Image. Photograph Privately Held by Cynthia Shenette; Text Copyright (c) 2012 Cynthia Shenette)

This young lady looks as if she is celebrating a special occasion of some sort.  A graduation or a confirmation perhaps?  Might the white/light dress indicate a spring or summer activity?  I love the pearls, the bracelet, and the gloves.  Enlarge the photo, and take a look at the lovely pattern in the fabric and the overall detail of the dress.  The style of dress seems to indicate the photo was taken sometime in the mid to late 1910s.  Photographer information is not printed on the photo.
