Describing clothes to me

There used to be a time when I could see the clothes that I wore, the ones that I bought, and the ones on others. Now, it has all changed for me; I can no longer see enough decipher anything and I have to depend on others to describe them all to me. I can still remember enough to formulate pictures in my mind as to how things look but I need to use certain strategies in order to keep things straight.

Whenever it comes to dealing with clothes and how they may look on either me or someone else, I go through my checklist of questions before I start. Color of clothing, style, long or short, dark or light, type of fabric, and what it is going to be worn with or how is it being worn. I take great care to ensure that I can get all of this info and more often than not it is painstaking but a necessity.

Mom is extremely good with all of this as she describes everything that I ask her to plus more. Others have to be taught my way of doing things if they are not already familiar. So there you have it.
