Floral fashion fiasco

Mary Beighton (wife of T. E. Beighton), Louise Isabel Willis (wife of Errick Willis), and Beryle Ciley (wife of C. D. Ciley), as shown left to right. The women are cutting a cake for the fiftieth anniversary of a Winnipeg municipal chapter of the Imperial Order Daughters of the Empire, and all are wearing I.O.D.E. pins. Little do they realize that a florist's shop has just thrown up all over their formal wear.

Anyone interested in seeing more fashion fiascos?  Believe me, there are lots.
