A positively delightful look at young ladies misadventures abroad and the perplexed coppers who must try to wrangle these ladies into some sense of order after “late nights spouting Mozart arias in the streets” (a paraphrase).

Although this is clearly satire, a part of me (that wishes that ladies still wore sprigged muslin and talked prettily) would love this to be real.

Alas, this is one fashion that has not come around again.

I’ll keep waiting.
