Skeeter Phelan is a character from one of my favorite books, The Help, which was later turned into a movie. I will explain the outfit. She has flat shoes, since her mother, Charlotte Phelan, doesn't want her to look any taller. At 13, she was 5'11". She always wears a headband to keep back her frizzy hair. Skeeter 'always looks like someone told her how to dress,' to quote a character in the book. So, her outfits are simple, since her mother tells her what to wear. Her sunglasses are the style for the time, early 1960s. The red satchel is what she stores her important notes in since she is afraid her mother will read them if she leaves them at home. skeeter thinks the satchel is quite ugly. I have read this book so many times, I have lines memorized!
