Long ago, Queen Michelle taught me that the secret to making head-to-toe black outfits interesting is to mix up your textures. At the time, my wardrobe was considerably more color-heavy, but I stashed that tip in a corner of my brain. And here it is in play: Woven blazer, linen tank, snake-texture pants, and nubuck shoes. It’d be nice if my brain stashed away helpful tidbits like my GoDaddy password and father-in-law’s birthday … but it definitely prefers to hang on to dressing tips. And song lyrics. And random facts about polar bears.
