“When a woman says, ‘I have nothing to wear!’, what she really means is, ‘There’s nothing here for who I’m supposed to be today.’”
~ Caitlin Moran
FIRE! There’s a fire and it’s happening in your closet! NOW!
– STOP –
- What’s the first image that comes to mind?
- Your wedding dress charred beyond recognition?
- Those Japanese selvage jeans reduced to a pile of cinders?
- Sixty pairs of flaming shoes being hurled out of a window?
Whether it’s a keepsake or an old reliable with an incomparable cost-per-wear ratio, the things that have us dialling 999 are those which we determine the true value of our wardrobe. The prospect of loss has a unique way of concentrating the mind which comes in handy when you find yourself moaning, ‘I have nothing to wear.’ Simply shout FIRE and you’ll soon find out what you really value.
Not too loudly though. You’ll wind up frightening the neighbours.
