Once upon a time I had my first big group meeting for Dayton City Paper. This meeting was to be at Therapy Cafe. I was excited and wanted to look cool. I wanted to make a good impression. I wanted to seem current and stylish.
I’m met up with Swanky prior to the meeting and was somewhat intoxicated upon arrival at my house. I grabbed multiple things that I like and thought upon each piece this is cool, this is cool, I like this I should wear this.
I did not think the outfit all the way through, as a whole, instead I had thought only of each piece separately.
Here is the only surviving photograph of the absurd outfit I wore that fateful day.
I swear I’ve learned my lesson and it will never happen again.
The lesson to take away from all of this is that maybe a good outfit needs only one cool stand out piece at a time. Maybe most of it should be a bit more understated, one focus ya know.
