“A Little of a Coquette” Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Washington Irving

"She was withal a little of a coquette, as might be perceived even in her dress, which was a mixture of ancient and modern fashions, as most suited to set off her charms. She wore the ornaments of pure yellow gold, which her great-great-grandmother had brought over from Saardam; the tempting stomacher of the olden time; and withal a provokingly short petticoat, to display the prettiest foot and ankle in the country around.“

(Coquette: A usually unscrupulous women who seduces or exploits men)
