Today's fortune: November 16, 2011

Today's fortune: Simplicity and clarity should be your theme in dress.

My hilarious and kind-hearted brother suggested I should wear a dress in response to this fortune. I told him he could start his own blog. My first reaction to reading the fortune this morning was, "I hope 'clarity doesn't mean 'see-through.'" Nobody needs that.

So for simplicity, I wore all solid colors today: khaki pants, a solid green polo shirt, and a solid blue zip-up sweater.

For clarity, the sweater has the Acme Co. logo on it, declaring to everyone who sees me who I work for.

The secret is that's pretty much the outfit I wear to work every day. But I treated my wardrobe today as if it was something special. I even had Jamie take a picture of me this morning, and I Photoshopped it onto a fashion magazine cover.
