    She Said, He Said

    I’m not what you might call “fashionably inclined.” I admit this. My roommates have stopped asking me if their outfits look good because they know that there’s always a chance I’ll let them walk out the door to some important interview wearing acid-washed jeans anda tube top accented with a faux fur scarf (assuming they actually own such items).
