Quote of the Day:
“Be sure as you pack that you are putting in all that you are likely to require, and are not leaving out all your most indispensable possessions. It’s an awful thing to begin dressing for a ball on your arrival at a house, and to find you have forgotten the only pair of slippers which will possibly go with your dress; or to have a whole costume spoiled by the dash of colour which was to have been imparted by a bright handkerchief or a knot of ribbon.”
~ Lillias Campbell Davidson, 1889
