Often, she explained, it will be the outfit she wore on a particular day that will help trigger memories of other things.

I’ll remember the outfit I wore that day and it will lead me to remembering other things.

She continued: “If I need to remember something, I take a photo ‘click’ in my head. I can always remember. Sometimes, people say, ‘do you remember?’ And I’ll remember the outfit I wore that day and it will lead me to remembering other things.”
