Memo 204: Picked from the Deck and Drew a Blank

Sometimes, I draw an utter, complete  and absolute clothing blank. Like, I’m looking into a sea of clothing but nothing. I hate saying I have nothing to wear because there are three closets full of things that would say otherwise but sometimes, literally, nothing. Not one thing.

Instead of just sitting on the floor in the middle of a tantrum wasting precious pre-event preparation time, I either resort to something that I’ve already worn or I go for a monochromatic look. On this day, I settled for the latter. Can we say black like I never left?

Phew, that was a close call. I almost didn’t go…
