Red hats and purple clothes

For those of us that are tired of being sensible, who wish that for one day, to throw caution to the wind and wear whatever they felt like, to wear colours that clash and want to wear their slippers with that gorgeous maxi dress that they bought and have never worn or wear that mini-skirt again, this day was dedicated to YOU!
The "redhats and purple clothes" May luncheon at the Carrington Inn was a great success! An exclusive number of ladies attended the luncheon to hear Trina from Bonny Doon Skin Food, talking about nourishing the skin with natural ingredients while members and guests wore red hats and purple clothes in honour of staying "out there". Where? Oh, well, waay, out there.

When I am an old woman, I shall wear purple with a red hat that doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.
And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves and satin candles, and say we've no money for butter. I shall sit down on the pavement when I am tired and gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells and run my stick along the public railings and make up for the sobriety of my youth.I shall go out in my slippers in the rain and pick the flowers in other people's gardens and learn to spit.You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat and eat three pounds of sausages at a go or only bread and pickles for a week and hoard pens and pencils and beer nuts and things in boxes. But now we must have clothes that keep us dry and pay our rent and not swear in the street and set a good example for the children. We must have friends to dinner and read the papers.

But maybe I ought to practice a little now? So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple.
