She So – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Word of the Day – Chic




“One is never over-dressed or under-dressed with a little black dress.”  Karl Lagerfeld

She So

Just like a Lincoln rose bud breaking open
she drew the eye to her certain beauty,
no mere hanger for clothes
everything that adorned her
became a crowning glory,
naked she was breathtaking,
dressed she became beauty,
a synchronicity of chic.

  4. While here I sit, in my baggy sweatpants, faded t-shirt, and hair falling out of the ponytail I hastily pulled it into some 12 hours ago. I hang my head in shame.

  6. Meets the situation too: More slow fashion, not fast fashion. But honestly i have to say, Hauté Couture is not availalble for all. 😉 Thank you for great thoughts, and a wonderful poem. Best wishes, Michael
