What NOT to wear.

So I have to go to Goose's company Christmas party tonight... 

I've managed to get out of this event the past

It's at the aquarium, and it will probably be really nice and everything... but small-talking all night with a bunch of computer nerds people I hardly know is not my idea of a good time. I am quite sure my social anxiety will kick in and I'll spend most of the night totally awkward and uncomfortable, but whatevs...

It's once a year... I'll suck it up and 
schmooze with the best of them ;)

Or this:


But I'll probably end up looking like this:

I have been running from my attraction to the completely mismatched, book-nerd style my whole life, but I think it's about time I embrace it.

So wish me luck... I'm sure I'll have some terribly embarrassing moments to talk about on Monday. ;)
