Southern Belle Dress
She heard I was in Charleston for the weekend and invited me to a “little get-together” at her family’s estate in the Old Village.
I arrive (along with 200 other guests) at the most pristine white colonial I’ve ever seen, Susanna fluttering about the manicured lawn in a swingy belted dress that would’ve put Scarlett’s velvet curtains to shame.
Is it a coincidence that six of South Carolina’s most eligible bachelors amble hopefully behind Susanna and her dress as she hands out red velvet cupcakes?
There’s charming the Tarleton twins on the front porch and then there’s Susanna’s method (a touch more subtle).
Flirtatious and chaste aren’t always polar opposites, you know.
