The invitation said “professional attire appreciated.” I think I looked professional, until I took a swig of coffee while driving to the event and spilled some in my lap.
Thankfully, a busy pattern, even one in black and white, hides a multitude of stains. I don’t think anyone but myself noticed the faint, brown coffee spots down my front. (I can’t even see the stains in these photos.) A strategically held portfolio also helped to obscure the evidence.
