This one time,
I started telling everyone that "black and navy" were super "in".
Because I got really sick of people turning away amazing pieces of clothing just because they "wouldn't go with anything else they had in their closet".
Which, first of all, is ridiculous.
And second of all, really annoying.
I mean, take this jacket, for example.
It very clearly clearly A. Does not "match" with anything else that I am wearing,
B. is still awesome.
I mean, who decided what "matching" was, anyhow?
"Technically", you can combine primary colors and complimentary colors and analogous colors, and in all circumstances still somehow be "matching". . .
So essentially you can combine anything, just so long as you find a way to justify it.
Which is awesome for me,
because little (very well known) fact:
I am very good at justifying my way through situations.
Usually involving shopping.
Or 1 am sushi.
And attributing its necessity to my psychiatric wellbeing.

So here's an experiment for you:
1. Pull your 3 favorite items out of your closet,
2. put them all on at once, and
3. retroactively justify why they go together.
This is called being a "style expert".
Feel very powerful.
