Crisis de armario. Sigh. Closet crisis. Do you have these? Here’s the situation: you just showered, you have 10 minutes to get out the door (and feed the dog, cat, baby, clean up, dust, write a short autobiography, pick up the cat poop on the floor, do 100 sit-ups, and fix the washing machine), what do you wear and how do you get dressed? When I have crisis de armario, I basically try everything in my entire closet on and proceed to take it off and hang it over my desk chair, forming an Everest-size mountain of sad, limp outfits. Nothing looks right, nothing feels right, huff. Its too hot, I’m too cold. Puff. My blood pressure raises, I start to sweat, and I’m bothered by all the clothing I will have to fold and put back later. Am I totally crazy? Someone out there please tell me this happens to them too. I usually end up in something with birds on it, a bit disheveled, and inevitably late to wherever I’m going (ok, only 2 minutes late, I am a pathologically punctual person).
This is where that uniform would come in SO handy. And if I only had a few garments, that Everest-size mountain of sad clothing would only be a non-intimidating hill, and instead of 2 minutes late, I would be early as usual.
What clothing makes you feel really, really attractive? What clothing makes you feel the best? Is it a great pair of jeans? Is it a low cut top? A hoodie sweatshirt? A fun, frilly, frock? Made-to-kill heels? Do you have crisis de armario like me?
And what do you usually migrate towards and purchase when shopping? Another great pair of jeans? Another low cut top? An outrageous feather boa?
Do you just not care? Do you not go shopping? Do you have any secret shopping resources that you want to share with me?
