What Thee Shouldst Wear for A Midsummer Day's Work
Jul 11, 2011 - by Jessica Lapidos
Thy day is fraught with temperature burning.
Thou wouldst to wear a muumuu, else nothing,
but work awaits ye, chic o thee must be.
Hark! Ensembles o'er here! Thrice beest thine!
And all that is made cometh from here,
the States that doth be United in
America. Except for all shoes.
Find thyself looking bright to work ere'day,
Support thee and thy country in this way.
***Sparknotes version: Three looks for work on a summer's day. All made in the USA, shoes not withstanding. See it all here.
