A play I saw in London was in rhyme
So you get an iambic post this time.
La Bête employs Hyde Pierce of Frasier fame
And Lumley who from Ab Fab earned acclaim.
I can’t list every cast member right now —
I tossed the program after final bow.
At least I do recall the plot about
An acting troupe forced to accept a lout.
Stupidity’s triumph was no surprise
To me, thanks to my many corporate lives.
To Chiswick House I’d traveled hours before
With friends in car and poodle on the floor.
Here’s Al with Caroline and Al’s brown dog.
(That yellow lab’s a random camera hog.)
With jeans and tee a great look wasn’t made,
But, bitches, dig my brand-new Prada shades!
What Wendy Wore:
Jacket: Alexander McQueen (2003)
Shoes: Michael Kors clogs (pre-2005)
Bag: Sonia Rykiel (2009)
Sunglasses: Prada (2010. Belated birthday gift from Mom)
Thanks to MrB for the feedback on my versification and to BarbaraB for the gift of the sunglasses.

I’m expecting more of your poems in the future, Wendy!!! lol
How clever! You make the basic black tee and jeans quite a look, if you ask me!
You look fierce in your new shades, and how cute are the dogs :)), have a fabulous day, xoxo
Penny Dreadful Vintage says
Teeheehee! Love the shaggy dog, what a cutie
Ah, it all leads up to the last line. Go rhyming Wendy!
Hi Wendy! I love the new Prada shades! I almost picked up a pair the other day, but couldn’t quite find my shape in the shop – I’m still on the quest. The prices have become really reasonable!!! Any rec’s for places to shop for them online?
Not sure because I got mine at the store. I never buy sunglasses online because they’re guaranteed to not fit that way!
Oh no, I always forget about that little problem! : ) Thanks for the reminder!

Cafe Fashionista says
You look like such a rocker chick! Love your style!! 🙂
Love the random camera hog Lab and the Prada shades! I’m glad you went for the iambic pentameter post–I haven’t seen anything in iambic pentameter since my school days spent studying Shakespearean sonnets.
fashion herald says
And here I was wondering what the heck you were doing when you tweeted about sonnets and rhyming verses last night!
Pop Champagne says

Shop N' Chomp says
Love your new shades Wendy! 😀
Hilarious! Love it.
Awww those dogs are so cute, especially that poodle! Loving your shades too! 🙂
a stylized hysteria says
I can’t even imagine the effort it took to create this post (this is coming from someone with an English degree, by the way). Ah Wendy, you never cease to entertain me and look great.
I really like the meter.
That last line is the best! Haha. Cute lab — and you’re looking fab!
