A closet attack is by definition that moment when your carefully picked out, outfit just want do and is not working for you to put it on and leave the house. The reasons for this are many and not so obvious . Whatever the reasons are, you are now forced to come up with a plan B or even Plan Z depending on how long it may take and last.

Out of a closet attack I  have had some of my most memorable and admired ensembles emerge. Know this great ideas take time and genus moments come one thought at a time. That being said , one does not have much  choice when time is of the essence and decisions must be made on the spot so that you can leave the house and hopefully leave on time.

After all you can always try for another day an idea that has come to you through this process.
