You know those days where you feel like complete crap? No? That’s just me? Well I’m gonna tell you about my problem anyway and how to solve it with a few simple steps.
 
1. Throw on the most comfortable shirt available. Significant other’s apparel welcome, bold slogan necessary.
2. Put on a form fitting skirt. Preferably in leather. If you don’t have one, you’re pretty much stuffed and should probably stay home and shop for one from inside the walls of your home. Here’s a few to get you started: 12 and 3 are pretty sleek.
3. Slip (or in my case, struggle) on some simple heeled sandals. These will help you achieve the “I’ve got places to go and people to see” kind of look we’re aiming for here. Nobody needs to know we’re really going to McDonalds. If anything, these heels say “I’m going to Starbucks to pick up my grande coffee in a venti cup with 2 pumps hazelnut, 2 pumps vanilla, 2 pumps caramel, 2 equals and 4 sweet and lows filled to the top with cream, with extra cream on the side, double cupped with no sleeve, a stir stick, and stopper put in the top” because I’m important, an asshole and want the barista to spit into my drink.
4. If you’re like me and hate wearing makeup, oversized sunglasses are an obvious must. Size absolutely matters. Get your mind out of the gutter.
5. To complete the look, slide one’s arm through structured glossy bag to give the outfit a polished and put together look.

And there you have it, how to go from no to whoa in five easy steps. But if you’re like me and want to put the extra effort in (joking, when do I do that?) there’s an optional bonus step 6: scrap all plans for the day and lounge around in your new outfit eating sticky date cup cakes. Too bad there’s no delivery McDonalds where I am. Then at least the delivery person would get to see the effort I put into dressing.
