We All Make Mistakes Once in a While
My camera can't seem to do justice to just how pink these socks are. I wore them with my crazy checked purple-and-pinkish shirt, and it just didn't go. (Of course, I didn't realize this until I got to the office, at which point it proceeded to bother me for the rest of the day.) I think maybe the pinks in question were just too different despite both being sort of pink.
So it turns out there are outer limits to my dandyism. I guess that's good to know--means I'm less likely to end up wearing combinations that everyone but me thinks are crazy. By age 70 or so, I hope to have overcome this stricture.
