Bright Yellow Pants: This one didn't just change my life; it saved my life. Allow me to explain: One fateful night a couple of years ago, I took a wrong turn on my walk home from the coffee shop while wearing a brand-new pair of bright yellow J.Crew jeans. Within minutes, I found myself edging along the shoulder of a 50 mile-an-hour road in the pitch dark, clutching my completely impractical Betsey Johnson laptop bag and an overstuffed purse between speeding traffic and a drainage ditch. As I approached a blind curve, I prepared to hurl myself into the abyss to avoid certain death, but then, the beam of oncoming headlights caught my jeans, and suddenly my legs were glowing brighter than a safety vest. I was visible, nay, I was invincible! Those yellow pants lit my way home.
