I mean, those are kind of the colors I’m wearing in these photos, right?
Alternatively, I guess you could see them as USC colors, but they’re losers, so why would you want to see them like that?
In my opinion, actually, ketchup and mustard are kind of losers too. I don’t know, I’ve just never liked them together? They’re fine by themselves – macaroni is excellent with a touch of yellow mustard, and french fries wouldn’t be complete without ketchup. But together, I just get flashbacks of those tiny McDonalds cheeseburgers I used to get as a snack before karate practice as a kid, that I always sort-of disliked because I didn’t know how to request no condiments.
These two pieces – the fuzzy mustard sweater and the carpetbag ketchup skirt – are actually brand new. I got them over fall break when my mother and I went shopping at the mall for new clothes that I absolutely don’t need. In fairness, I did get rid of quite a lot of clothes before I went off to school, but admittedly, I do have more clothes than I need.
I think I do a fairly good job of wearing them all though. I think of all of my clothes with the same kind of low key fondness that I do for all of my stuffed animals – I like to think they like being worn, and that it’s my duty as their owner to wear them so they don’t become sad.
That’s probably a little weird, but the way I see it, some people humanize their cars, their plants, or their pets – I humanize my clothes. And in return, my clothes make me look good. What do plants do? Give you oxygen to breathe? Pfft.
