Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a sixpence in her shoe!–”Something Old“ is a traditional English rhyme, instructing brides what to wear on their wedding day for good luck. The earliest recorded version appeared originally in St. James’ Magazine and dates to the 1870s, with the last line, about the sixpence, added a decade later. Emily Post, who famously wrote about etiquette, included the rhyme in her 1905 novel Purple and Fine Linen, popularizing the tradition in the United States. This is a lucky British sixpence. According to tradition, it should be worn in the left shoe.
