[The following is a guest post from Claudia at http://claudiayoga.com. The idea is to find an outfit that was very significant to you because of what happened when you wore it. Here’s her version.]
[My note to her guest post: THE ALTUCHER CONFIDENTIDAL EXERCISE FOR TODAY: find an outfit that was significant to you. Photograph it and post it to twitpic. Put the URL in the comments below so we can all see. Here’s Claudia’s version:]

|(What I was wearing the day he kissed me for the first time and I knew
he was the one)
I was nervous and so was He. We walked through the downtown New York City scenery, the statue of liberty on sight, the ferries filled with tourists.
The first stop was the South Street Seaport, but he did not muster the courage -he later confessed- and so we kept walking in a big semi-circle that brought us to the water edge of Battery Park. Then he (finally!) kissed me.
Months later he would tell to me that the jacket made me look “square and corporate”. I never wore it again.
|(What I was wearing the day of my wedding
I never felt more elegant, happy, blessed)
Can you think of an outfit you were wearing on a special day and re-create it with shoes, jacket, bag and all? It does not necessarily have to be a happy ocassion, it can be any relevant event, like: what I was wearing the day I graduated, or the outfit I was wearing when I learned I did not have my job anymore. Share a photo with me if you do.
You can put it in flicker or picassa or tweetpick and copy/paste the link on the comments. Remember to mention what was relevant about the outfit. What happened on that day?
Inspiration for this post came from an exercise suggested by artist Miranda July
