Lady in solitary daydream, with Muslin Gown and Petticoat trimmed with striped Blonde, spotted Gauze Mantelet, large Kerchief of plain Blonde, coiffed with a Bastienne surmounted with a Plumed Hat, watching, over her Fan, the Object of her reflections. (1784)
The little Tableau de Paris, 1783
* This has come up frequently, but I never translate it. Hérisson translates to "hedgehog", and it's used in reference to the very constructed, tall hairstyles of the 1770s - not the teased puffs of the 1780s.
** Probably bum rolls/hip pads.
