Me (6:00am): Iron my favorite coral-colored gown.
Me: (7:30am): Already thinking of an alternative for the coral-colored gown without any issue with the gown.
Me: (8:00am) – “I think I will just wear that little skirt instead”
Mum: “I don’t blame you”
Me: (8:15am) – Wears an animal skin patterned gown
Me: (8:25am) – Stare at the mirror and don’t like the fit of the gown, change it to the original choice of coral-colored gown.
Me:(8:30am) – Look at the mirror again and feel my hairdo and the gown are a mismatch
Mum: “What’s your problem?”
Me: “I am not just feeling this combination, let me kuku wear the skirt”
Me: Wears the skirt. Oh! God, the zip is spoilt.
Mum: That’s how you will go late today.
Me: (9:30am) – I finally wear the coral-colored gown.
I wouldn’t be wrong if I said more 80% of ladies or even guys always go through this process every day and have this conversation repeatedly with their parents or friends or spouse as the case might be.
I like to call it the ‘What to Wear’ wahala. ‘What to Wear’ is characterized by making several changes to ones already made choice for a cloth or dress to wear out.
For me, having to deal with that syndrome has not been easy. As much as I promise myself that I won’t repeat that conversation again with my mum I go ahead and repeat just the very next day.
Scientist are always on the prowl for solutions to scientific issues, fashion experts on the other hand are always handing out hints, hacks and fashion fixes. But no one seems to have a fix or hack or hint as to how to solve this ‘What to Wear’ wahala.
So what’s your fix to this wahala? Do you have a hack or quick fix that has helped you?
