A Dress For All Occasions

" Dresses for breakfast,

and dinners,

and balls;

Dresses to sit in,

and stand in,

and walk in;

Dresses to dance in,

and flirt in,

and talk in,

Dresses in which to do nothing at all;

Dresses for Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. "

-William Allen Butler, "Nothing to Wear-Harper's Weekly" Feb. 7, 1857
