The Louise Dress, by AC Clothing and Bags
The Louise Dress is named for the lovely, vivacious, and trailblazing Louise Brooks.
These dresses feature the cropped length, clean, elegant lines, and easy fit of the mid ‘twenties. Sleeveless, loose-fitting, with dropped waist and a tie-topped scooped back and layered flared skirts, with a dainty vintage button where the upper skirt overlap meets the bodice. They’re constructed of light weight original vintage print fabrics, cut on the bias, finished with contrast cotton binding and dainty vintage button where the overskirt meets the dropped waist.
These dresses are made to order by request
Amy M. Cools, PhD, is a historian, author, and educator. Her doctoral thesis, ‘The Life and Work of James McCune Smith (1813-1865),’ is the first completed book-length biographical study dedicated to this pioneering intellectual, scientist, and physician. She is currently a historical researcher and writing assistant and part-time educator. As time allows, she is also currently working on a full-length scholarly biography of McCune Smith and on compiling and editing his complete written works. Amy holds a PhD in History from the University of Edinburgh (2021); an MA in Intellectual History with Distinction from the University of Edinburgh (2018); a BA in Philosophy: Ethics, Politics and Law, Summa Cum Laude from California State University at Sacramento (2013), and an AA in Humanities and Fine Arts from Riverside City College (1999).
Amy has written theses, peer-reviewed articles, conference papers, and essays on McCune Smith, Frederick Douglass, the history of nineteenth- and early twentieth-century civil rights movements, the history of philosophy, United States history, and other historical and philosophical topics. Links to these and/or full articles can be found at her website OrdinaryPhilosophy.com – for which she plans to resume writing more frequently as soon as her busy schedule allows – which also features photo-illustrated writings about her history- and philosophy-themed travels and other topics. Born in California, USA, she now makes her home near Falkirk, Scotland.
