Royal Blue Minimalism
My mom gave me this asymmetrical dress, made by Canadian brand Sympli. I love the heavy fabric, unusual design, and flattering drape. The whole garment feels very modern to me, like I'm about to jump into Gattaca (although I highly hope that doesn't happen). Perhaps it's a reach, but I think the outfit's simplicity helped me stay organized and productive throughout the day.
Unfortunately, there's a problem with intuitive leaps like that: the human brain is fallible. I'm currently reading a book called Mindwise, which explains how cognitive errors can lead to social misunderstandings, ranging from minor disagreements between friends to brutal international warfare. It's an enlightening book--but also kind of depressing. My mom commented, "Basically, everybody is wrong about everything." Yup. At least I can still enjoy the sunshine!
PS: Sympli clothes can be purchased online at Joss Boutique or The Clothing Cove. There are probably other places as well but Google turned those up immediately.
