Choosing an outfit for something important is not a simple task for me. It takes days of deciding every little detail. What color should I wear? Should it be a dress or pants? Will I be too cold? Too hot? What’s the vibe? Then after I find some options, I panic text all my friends, who probably don’t care all that much, but tolerate my annoying asks.
Reading this may make this process seem chaotic and miserable, but the reality is that it's actually fun for me. Using an outfit to send a very specific message is the reason why I love clothing so much, and picking said outfit is like my Olympics. There’s the preparation through the little decisions I mentioned above, the anticipation, and then of course the big reveal where you see if all the thought and effort you put into the look actually paid off.
