Help me find a lamp that will allow me to see my clothing.

Many, many days of my adult life have begun with me systematically flinging item after item of black clothing out of my dresser drawer in an effort to find some particular black tank top or pair of tights or running shorts, etc.
I find it infuriating, but I've never done anything about it. Today's the day!
I'm looking for a lighting solution that will let me find my clothing, will look nice (I want to avoid one of those gooseneck office-y looking things, which is largely why this problem hasn't been solved before) and that I can order online (I don't want to take a trip to Ikea.) I'm looking for something smallish and flexible, that casts good non-fluorescent light that I can direct to find a black tank top in a dimly lit room.
Other solutions have been exhausted: there is already a regular lamp with a shade on top of the dresser, but the drawers themselves are in shadow and you can't move the lamp because of some electrical logistical problems, so I'm really looking for a lamp.
