It’s an old-fashioned word.  I picture Gibson girls sitting in front of their vanities, which are covered with powders, creams, lotions, rouge, and perfumes. They looked so elegant once they were all done up, didn’t they?

To primp, to be accused of primping, is not especially complimentary.  It connotes a woman (or man) who spends an inordinate amount of time in front of the mirror, fussing over her appearance to a ridiculous degree.

I would just like to point out that if some of us didn’t primp, you wouldn’t want us to come out in public.  You should be thankful.
