The Fantasies of Miss Price.

A young lady (anyone under 30) needs a chaperone. Calling cards must follow strict and utterly confusing rules. Esmerelda can’t possibly sit next to Edward but should be no more than two seats away from Phillip and no fewer than four seats away from Constance. Why? See Appendix A re: scandals. Don’t be a bore or a door-slammer. Be witty, but not too witty. Do not mention polo to Phillip, since he lost his leg in a riding accident (don’t mention his riding accident).


To hell with convention. Wear something that startles. Be mysterious, but not cagey. Be flirty, but not on the nose, for those messages are poorly received. Be feisty (dear me, I said it). The neck should be covered (we aren’t savages) but that too should be the allusion of innocence. Whatever it is must accompany your movement, calling back your subtle hints. Silk perhaps. Yes, definitely silk. I’ve said too much already. Mention this to no one.

Mrs. Post’s Ruffle Neck Dress (No. 6492). An Italian’s Victorian dream. Pure silk. Print is from the esteemed Ratti Vault in Italy. Victorian-era ruffled bib and self-tie at neck. Falls just above the knee. Bodice and skirt are lined in luxe silk crepe de chine. Green base with white dots. Imported.

*Model is 5' 10” and is wearing a size 2.
