A little bragging. First some background.
Last week at the wedding I performed in Nebraska City we made new friends at our table. She writes a fashion blog www.retailbitch.com. I posted a story from yesterday on her blog, and thought I'd share it with you as well:
Yesterday I was attending a morning meeting of the Mayor's Clergy Advisory Board for the first time. On my morning walk I contemplated three looks -- authorative, swagger (this would have involved my cowboys boots), or something fun, colorful, and fashion forward (with the thought that most in the room wouldn't be looking this way.
So, I went with a gingam shirt and brightly colored non-matching tie, my fedora, etc.
I walked into a room of 50 people almost exclusively in blacks and grays, even those dressed more casually. Good fashion choice then. Even the mayor said something to me about my fashion and the director of libraries said, "We didn't have ministers who looked like that when I was a kid."
By the way, I actually have a picture, as I had snapped one with my phone to send to Michael who was away. Here it is.
