Playing Dress Up

I got sorta dressed up a couple times lately. First for the adoption hearing:

And then the very next day to perform a wedding for friends:

It’s nice to get all cleaned up sometimes. It’s not my default setting, but it works. And it’s really strange to me how differently people treat you when you’re wearing a suit. It doesn’t make a lot of sense. A horrible person can buy fancy clothes and put them on. And I know a lot of amazing, powerful people who refuse to wear “fancy” clothes. Yet, we automatically trust people wearing the agreed uniform of our society.

How often do you get all dressed up? Why? And how do people treat you differently?
