LC Jessie's Skirt
"...But “short and sweet” are in again; No more the grievance rankles, For Mabel’s now curtailed her train And shows her dainty ankles."
—Jessie Pope, circa 1910
It could happen like this.
You’re walking up Lafayette St. in Manhattan in this vintage ankle length skirt. It sways as you move, the silky crinkle georgette teasing the imagination of onlookers. You notice a mysterious alleyway that cuts through to Mulberry.
“My goodness.” The view hasn’t changed in a century — cobblestones, shuttered windows, small red-brick buildings; horse-drawn cabs.
At 10th and Broadway, the gent in the top hat walking next to you begins to recite an English poem he learned when he was a boy.
