Today is an important occasion
She thinks that she must wear the right clothes
The right combination of clothes will make her lucky
But there are specific kinds of luck
And different kinds are needed for different occasions

A blue dress for intuition
The grey shirt and maroon slacks for making strong statements
The navy pullover and the woolen skirt for discovering mystery
She thinks of what she wore on a similar occasion

Like the one she will be involved in today
Particularly a similar occasion that was successful for her
She lies on the bed and imagines herself in a variety of outfits
She quickly narrows the range of possibilities

She tries them on in a few combinations
The striped shirt and corduroy slacks
The red dress, she leaves the house
The outcome is certain
