Ragtag Daily Prompt: Baggy Trousers

“What kind of fashion statement is that?” Asked the recently rehabilitated Lady Greenmeadow. The object of her scorn was the old King’s former mistress (one of many) la duchess du Linge. Rather than the usual court attire, the omnipresent mantua, she’d donned a pair of baggy trousers. Men’s trousers were usually rather tight and form-fitting, so she could not be accused of cross-dressing. No, this was the duchess’ feeble attempt to influence court fashions.

Maxwell is like a little kind- in and out, in and out, all day long!

When the old King saw Madame la duchesse, he said, “My dear, you’ve never looked more lovely. Where did you get those trousers? They are much too large for you!”

      1. I love the name Lucy! It reminds me of one of my favorite comics in the whole world. Yes, Lucille Ball! Does your Lucy like to cut up? 😺

  1. The old mistress knows her King only too well. I was wondering what you would come up with. Thanks for joining in Russell 🙂 🙂
