Named after Elizabeth Cochrane Seaman (May 5, 1864 – January 27, 1922), better known by her pen name Nellie Bly, the Seaman smock is available in Dutch wax and light weight denim. With deep front pockets and our signature buttons at the neck line, this is an elegant and practical top to wear over skirts or trousers.
The adventurer and journalist was widely known for her record-breaking trip around the world in 72 days, in emulation of Jules Verne's fictional character Phileas Fogg, and an exposé in which she worked undercover to report on a mental institution from within. She was a pioneer in her field, and launched a new kind of investigative journalism. Bly was also a writer, industrialist, inventor, and a charity worker.
“Energy rightly applied and directed will accomplish anything.” Nellie Bly.
