Fashion fail

Nwosu narrated:

"Some time ago, I went to an event looking all smart and elegant in a fashionable outfit that conveyed my intelligence and confidence. Then I met a certain woman who appeared to be in her fifties but looks both classy and arrogant. She seems to have a fashion disagreement with my outfit.
"My flat boot and knit skirt were comfortable and the white blouse and blazer were elegant yet all business. She was insistent that I should have worn long pants instead of displaying my knit skirt. She sounded very rude and rigidly argued endlessly. I felt really bad and I couldn't follow the show to the end. I just left."
