There's is something hard to reconcile between organizing your wardrobe/closets/look and going to a Cindy Sherman retrospective.  I have to say I think Cindy Sherman 'wins' in exposing artifice, the way our appearances reveal more about us than we are intending, the subtle omnipresence of horror/decay/ugliness in our society and other exposes.  However, in spite of all this, we must dress (in my opinion)/put on a look and our appearance works best when it is an expression of/in energy alignment with ourselves in the moment.  The caution is not to make too much of it, not to confuse appearance with reality.  Now take it from there......
