I wasn’t quite the ‘trooper’ at the Status Scout Trooper party. Whereas everybody else was in some camouflage/army green/khaki outfit, I was in my usual dreary black and gray color scheme. Mentally rehearsed an outfit explanation in my head (just in case) which goes something like this – I was dressed as a wounded soldier as evidenced by the strategically-placed chiffon-lacking-areas in my dress. Explanation to be followed by an eye-roll and a silent but very lip-readable ‘duh’ to make the question-asker secondguess his/her ability to pinpoint references. Well, that, or that I was a spy- which would’ve fooled absolutely no one.
It wasn’t that I was trying to be a rebel not following themes. I searched and searched but all camo/army inspired pieces I used to own, I let go of. (Again, this is me pushing back memories I’d rather not remember. For your entertainment purposes – one includes a sprained elbow from a dive I took in some CAT obstacle course in high school. Yes, that happened.)
Upon further inspection of my messy closet post-event, I found a handful of army green skirts. Oops. Maybe I was blinded by my unconscious to be able to wear this Proudrace dress I’ve been dying to since I laid eyes on it at Platform.
Then again, maybe I just wasn’t wearing my glasses at the time. On purpose. You’ll never know. And I definitely don’t remember.
