[ Suitable Attire ]
Imagine the situation. You're in Carryduff (or Saintfield). The
natives are walking past you pointing fingers and laughing so much
that some of them actually fall over. This doesn't sound like a

Suitable Attire for Teenage Girl
Ideally, if you are bringing one to Northern Ireland, she should be
