    Carrie Carrie felt the drag of desire for all that was new and pleasing in apparel for women. She noticed​ too, with a touch at the​ heart, the fine ladies who elbowed and ignored her. They brushed past in utter disregard of her presence. They themselves were eagerly enlisted in the materials that the store contained. Carrie was not familiar with the appearance of her more fortunate sisters of the city. Neither had she before known the nature and appearance of the shop girls with whom she now compared poorly. Most of them were pretty with an air of independence and indifference that added a certain zest. Their clothes were​ neat, in many instances fine. Wherever she encountered the eye of one it was only to recognize in it a keen analysis of her own position-dash–her individual shortcomings of dress and that shadow of manner which she thought must hang about her and make clear to all who and what she was. A flame of envy lighted in her heart. She realized in a dim way how much the city held-dash–​wealth, ​fashion, ease-dash–every adornment for women. She longed for dress and beauty with a whole heart.
