It all started when my girlfriends made a plan to go to brunch.
Like clockwork, my phone pinged. "What's everyone planning on wearing?" asked one of my friends in the group chat.
"I'm thinking a dress?" replied another, making sure there was a question mark at the end, indirectly telling everyone that she was looking for approval.
