It can be said that the fabulous fifties were the heyday of power dressing. I have no personal experience with that era, but the photo that starts this vignette doesn’t absolutely have to be set in that time period; it could be some sort of retro-theme gathering. But the image did strongly suggest (to me at least) a definite sequence of events stemming from the stance of the dress-wearer, and this is one possible outcome. Enjoy.
I didn’t realize until I named the piece that I had already written a vignette with the same title—which is why I added the “Fabulous Fifties” tag. But I’ll take this opportunity to plug 2007’s “Power Dressing” vignette, which reads surprisingly well for being that early in my development as a TG author.
