The way you makea me feel
Like George Costanza in Seinfeld I happen to dress based on mood. Well, my mood and the current vibes of course, which kind of blur into the same thing. Today was one of those days where I happened to dress in the wrong outfit, thus all day projecting the wrong vibes. I had these new clothes that I wanted to wear and even though they didn't feel quite right I left the house in them anyway.
Usually on one of those days I might drop in at an Op Shop and attempt to resurrect a new outfit with the inclusion of a cheaply bought accessory or different shirt. One day I was so unhappy with my outfit that I bought an entirely new and different one, got changed in the bathroom and immediately felt better. I have a really fraught relationship with clothes - what I'm wearing is incredibly important to me yet what I want to wear is something that is ever changing and never really entirely satisfied. This is kind of the "I'd never want to belong to any club that would have someone like me as a member" thing, that plagues me.
