My First Exquisite Dress.

I love the life of your hat,

I once had a dress like that.
All grace and glamour,
The boy’s would clamour
To glimpse the off shoulder
French fancy.

And me, at sixteen,
I learned how to preen
I perfected a wiggle,
A look over my shoulder,
But under my brows.

The dress held my joi de vivre
My confidence my class.
It was in the lace,
While I hid the blush
Upon my face.

My parisienne dress
wasn’t me.
But in it, I could be,
Entertaining and sweet.
They would fall at my feet,
And I could shoo them away.

Back then, when age was nothing
But a moment in time.
Confidence plucked from air
As the flower in my hair.
It was all so fleeting,
like a clandestine meeting.

      1. Very true that. This one certainly has that natural balance and flow. That said, I don’t think I’ve read anything of yours that doesn’t.

        Lovely stuff, as always.

  2. There is always that “one” dress that was a hit, a highlight, a keeper. I love the pillbox hat. Interesting we don’t really wear hats any more. It used to be a thing. Still is in England I guess. I’d love a really GREAT hat! yikes I’m getting old mwhaha

          1. lol, I know what you mean. I have to wear a special type of hat or I look wretched. I like big and floppy, which isn’t the style that suits me. I tend to angle them which looks better too, but try to find that today lol.

              1. I used to knit and crochet so I have a selection I’ve made for myself and everyone in the family. My current favourite is a bright pink had with a white band that I can angle lol. I think everyone wore theirs out, but I’m not making any this year.
