On Little Black Dresses and Little Black Dogs

Little Black Dresses, NYC
Photo by myself in Columbus Circle, at 59th Street and Central Park West.

The language of many fashionable women of a certain set is shown above: little black dresses, big bags, small dogs. Most of the time, the small dogs are placed into the big bags during subway rides.*

There is a requisite splash of jewelry. There are sandals, pedicured feet and plucked eyebrows. There are bodies toned from daily gym routines and nightly evenings on the town.

*All dogs, except seeing-eye dogs, must be placed in carriers while on the subway. If the dog is too large for a bag, they cannot get on the train.
