A friend recently posted a link on Facebook to a slideshow called “You Suck at Powerpoint” by Jesse Desjardins. I thought it was very funny, and well-written, but it also struck me that many of the principles it covers also apply to getting dressed.
So naturally this led to me staying up until 4am obsessively composing my own version on Polyvore. What, like you’ve never done that. I hope you enjoy it!*
1) Before anyone complains, NO I do not really think everyone else sucks at getting dressed. Sometimes I suck at getting dressed. I borrowed the title from the original, lighten up.
2) NO, I don’t expect everyone to plan every single thing they wear days in advance. But knowing how to do it is a useful skill and it’s a nice goal to have. Just because you don’t actually eat 5 fresh fruits and vegetables every day, it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t try, and it doesn’t make me a nutritional Nazi to suggest that it’s still a good idea.
