the original inspiration for the Chemise?


About ♔ la dauphiine ♔

Connecticut-based jewelry monger, history buff, Mets fan. On the hum-drum side, call me a lauded poet, novelist and ghost-writer. (That's right, I haunt prose.)

    I covet the hat – I yearn for massive millinery!

    I tried to read the caption; thought I saw ‘Creole’? The symbolism is rife in her outfit – making the lady all the more fascinating! (once saw a mid-19th c. photo of a lady advertising a dentist’s practice – there were teeth and forceps decorating her skirt.)


it's not just a love-affair with my own voice
