A brief description of Miss Havisham, from Great Expectations by Charles Dickens.

She was dressed in rich materials - satins, and lace, and silks - all of white. And she had a long white veil dependent from her hair, and she had bridal flowers in her hair, but her hair was white. Some bright jewels sparkled on her neck and on her hands, and some other jewels lay sparkling on the table. Dresses, less splendid than the dress she wore, and half-packed trunks were scattered about. She had not quite finished dressing, for she had but one shoe on - the other was on the table near her hand - her veil was half arranged, her watch and chain were not
put on, and some lace for her bosom lay with these trinkets and with her handkerchief and gloves, and some flowers, and a prayer book, all confusedly heaped about the looking glass.

.......and everything within my view that ought to be white, had been white long ago, and had lost its lustre, and was faded and yellow.

I saw that the bride within the bridal dress had withered like the dress, and like the flowers, and had no brightness left but the brightness of her sunken eyes.
