100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups – Week #10

The 100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups is a weekly meme that provides a prompt. The prompt may be a phrase or a photograph and the response must be made in 100 words. This week's prompt is a picture:-
100 Word Challenge, Luxembourg Gardens,
Culottes were de rigueur this season but Flora wondered if she had the legs to carry them off. She wished she had chosen a different top, too. Red and purple really didn’t work well together. Maybe she should have dressed more formally for her audience with the Queen but she was being recognised for her services to fashion and if she couldn’t make a statement on such an occasion, with the Press watching, what was she doing in the business? She adjusted her hat and her . . . gloves - where were they? Oh rats! Would they allow her entry?

    Out of my comfort zone but an enjoyable exercise.

  3. I don't think they would let her in without an ugly hat. It's mandatory.

  4. I haven't thought about culottes in a long time. Didn't know they were still around...or maybe they arent?

  5. I looked at the prompt and saw something similar, Janice, although I didn't think about the Queen or gloves.
    So, of course, I like this a lot!

  9. Not to worry! Flor is probably better dressed than the Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie. :)

    Very well deserved, if I may say so. The colour scheme - block colours? - simply fantastic.
