CDLVIII - Fashion Backfire.

A sequel to the previous post.

In that post I recounted how I tore my trousers, doing good deeds.
This meant that I would need to wear 
suit trousers until I bought some new ones.

There were problems…

Fashion Backfire.

I am embarrassed to report a wardrobe malfunction,
Where  checked shirt clashed with some pants with stripes
And the dissonant junction distressed a woman, well dressed.

These types prevail in cases, style based,
And I was taken to court for the crime of bad taste.

  1. A checked shirt with striped dress trousers? You will have to buy some jeans for doing good deeds.

  2. I guess you learnt it the hard way ;-)

  3. Cosmo, I just nominated you for the Liebster Award. :) Congratulations! Love your poems! Here's the link to your award, the rules and how to pass the torch to other dear bloggers:

  4. Maybe you should consider getting some plain dark blue or black trousers......

  5. Sad. Give me a call next time you are in Sydney. I will take you shopping!

  6. What! Talk about a drama Queen. It's not as if I said I was going to have your entire body covered in " Rall Rules" tattoos.


You've come this far - thank you.
Take your time, look around,
There is lots to see.
