“Men leered, mothers swooned, Dads scowled and young girls shed their preppy pleats for, well, a tiny snip of a skirt or a sheath that looked like a short tunic, [worn] with tights and Mary Janes,” summarizes Rita Mitchell-Waldoff, a former Little Rock boutique owner who’s now a writer and fashion editor for Fashion Advantage magazine.
