Happy Valentine's Day!: Some Party Outfits for the Day from 1910

It appears that in the past Valentine's Day parties were celebrated a bit like Halloween, with various outfits to choose from.  Now it seems like the focus is on the party itself, with outfits chosen to look cute on date night as opposed to playing a character.  "Valentine Day Parties by Waldon Fawcett," East Mississippi Times (Starkville, Mississippi), 11 February 1910, page 7; digital image, Chronicling America (http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/lccn/sn87065609/1910-02-11/ed-1/seq-7/# : 14 Feb 2017).
Some options were "The Spirit of Valentine Day," "Cupid," "The Queen of Hearts," and "The Post Girl."
