Almost like clockwork, we get up and get dressed everyday. Or some of us don’t dress in anything besides pyjamas and stay in bed, but that is clockwork too. Either case – you are wearing something. But did you ever get to thinking why you wear what you wear? Did you ever consciously notice the flowchart that goes in your head for choosing your attire? Read on for my musings.  Continue reading
