Nobody can think less of dress in general than I do…

“-but upon such occasion as this, when every body´s eyes are so much upon me, and in compliment to the Westons — who I have no doubt are giving this ball chiefly to do me honour — I would not wish to be inferior to others. And I see very few pearls in the room except mine.”

Says my cara sposa, Mrs Elton in Emma, vol 3, chapter II.
