So, obviously, on the day we went to Rainbow Row, I had to wear something colorful like this rainbow skirt from Alice and Olivia. Although it is a midi length skirt and made out of somewhat thick material, I imagine it was much more comfortable than what women during the 18th and 19th century would wear strolling the streets of Charleston. On one tour of a historic house in the area, the docent, dressed in mid-19th century garb, told us that women during the time were not allowed to reveal their ankles and if a gentleman happened to see them, it was his obligation to propose marriage! Well, no one proposed to me after seeing my ankles on Rainbow Row, but it is the 21st century!
Below you will see the rest of my pictures from Rainbow Row. The word "stroll" implies a certain leisureliness, but truth be told we were actually sticking to a schedule (my husband's, of course) in which we had to get to a tour of a house within 15 minutes of arriving at Rainbow Row. I hope the pictures look effortless and carefree, but in reality we were on a tight schedule!
