Happy October and All Hallows’ Eve, Dear Readers!
When I was a girl, Halloween was a time of candy corn and light shenanigans, but it seems that yet another holiday has been sullied. No longer do young women dress as a Squaw, Mammy, or other acceptable archetype; now everything accentuates the torrid: Sexy Nellie Bly, Sexy Shirtwaist Factory Worker, and even Sexy Mary Todd Lincoln!
This month’s Hussy, dressed as the Cat on the Hat, has clearly bought into this foolish new fashion. That choker says it all.
