This is the best thing to wear for today, you understand. Because I don’t like women in skirts, and the best thing is to wear pantyhose or some pants under a skirt, I think. Then you have the pants under the skirt, and then you can pull the stockings up over the pants underneath the skirt. And you can always take off the skirt and use it as a cape. So I think this is the best costume for today. I have to think these things up! You know. Mother wanted me to come out in a komono so we had quite a fight….
Do you think my costume looked alright for Brooks? I think he was a little amazed. No, no, this is the revolutionary costume, I never wear this in East Hampton.– Edith “Little Edie” Bouvier Beale
