This week I wore a pair of shoes not on my list. Back in late September, I placed a box that contained my black sling-back kitten heels on the top shelf of my closet; that is the shelf where things that I did not want crammed into a box and things that I have purchased to wear post-P333 live. I put the box up there in case of a funeral. I did not have any black shoes on my list, and I didn't want them on my list, either, but if I had to go to a serious function, I wanted to be able to dress appropriately.
I did not go to a funeral, thankfully, but I did interview for my contract renewal (good thoughts, please. I should know next week), and while the interview panel was made up of colleagues who see me sporting my Fluevogs all the time around campus, I felt the need to dress as conservatively as I was able. I debated this a bit, but as my fellow-P333-er, the sage Andrew Odom said, "...break from 333 if you have to. No financial security will have you at Project 00 forever!"
Here, then are this week's outfits.
If you'd like to see the cheater shoes or all of my Project 333 outfits, visit my Flickr set. See any other differences?
Before you head off, tell me something: when have you broken rules (your own or those imposed by others) in order to accomplish something in a more appropriate way?
