Scribe's Cave Picture Prompt: Haute Couture

"I am still adjusting but I think I've got it down.""Got what down?"Edith rolled her eyes. "My walk!

Except climb into the carriage.""So how will you get to 5th Avenue if you can't get into a carriage?""That's why I need to perfect my walk. With the wheels I'll be there in no time."It was Gwinnifred's turn to roll her eyes. "Of course. More milk, dear?"
