What to wear?
What to wear?
Happy Earth Day! I took public transportation to work, made plans to recycle my newspaper, drank tea from a refillable travel mug rather than wasting money and paper cups at Starbucks, and used an all-natural shower gel in a recyclable bottle this morning.
I also put on a green blouse in honor of the occasion. That outfit was easy to choose, but I don't know what I'm going to wear on Thursday. One day, a FOJG friend said I was going to call her crazy, but she has a pair of jeans that she only wears to concerts. I said it then and I'll say it again: I don't think that's crazy at all. I have some garments like that:
- My turquoise turtleneck achieved "lucky shirt" status when I wore it to take a test and got almost 100%, and this was sealed when I met Josh for the first time a few weeks later. I have worn it to other concerts, one coincidentally on the day I bought my wedding dress. I don't like to wear it too often - I don't want to wear all the luck out of it.
- I bought a dark green V-neck shirt last winter and wore it the day of Josh's Today show taping that February. I was able to hear the music from the street, and then I wore it to the Madison Square Garden show. I'm not proud to admit to throwing a shitfit when my fiance couldn't bring me my lucky shirt in time for a Good Morning America taping, but I will maintain to my dying day that things would've turned out differently if I'd been wearing that shirt.
- The cream-colored tank top I wore to my first concert in the middle of the summer. It's been special to me ever since.
- I wore a T-shirt with the Chinese character for "love" to the Today show taping on one of the happiest days of my life.
- While not exactly a lucky shirt, my "Make Chocolate Not War" T-shirt is one of my favorite items of clothing. I bought it from a candy store in Sydney and have gotten so many compliments on it, from people working in the supermarket to Carson Kressley (Queer Eye's fashion guy - I wore it to his book signing, where he broke off his talk to compliment me on it and signed my book, "Make cashmere not war!").
Yes, one can definitely argue that I've built up a good collection of clothes. But I don't know which ones to put on for Thursday's concert. It's too hot for the turtleneck and the shirt, and the T-shirts and tank tops aren't exactly work appropriate. There might be a way, though - wear a pair of nice, dark jeans and a jacket with one of the T-shirts underneath.
