I didn’t purposefully choose my outfit to match my speech topic. In fact, I had an entirely different outfit chosen and laid out, but hurriedly grabbed something different when I realized it was raining. The result must have been a subliminal effect of the speech I had been practicing all morning.
I don’t know if it was the outfit or the speech, itself, but I won the Best Speaker ribbon!
