Fashion = happiness

Celbrities at the Chanel show (from here)

I saw this photo on my facebook new feed from the Chanel page and it just looked so happy that it inspired me to write a poem. I hope you enjoy it.

I like to wear nice clothes, be it trousers or trench coats or gowns.
I own handbags and satchels and purses, in pink yellow white green and brown.
I savour the touch
of a mock-croc-skin clutch.
And I know I'll be fine
If those boots become mine.
There's now way to fight it
I'm hooked and I like it.
Just give me McQueen
Or Whistles or Preen,
Chanel, Westwood, Zara,
J Brand, Primark, Prada.
I don't have a preference, as long as it's bright.
You may say I'm crazy , well maybe you're right.
Because clothes wear away and time takes its toll,
But there's light in my life if there's fashion in my soul.
