Dear Clothes…

You are so much more than just a piece of fabric that I choose to keep me decent and warm everyday.  This weekend, I learned that you pretty much make me who I am.  One day, I’ll reject you, but the next, you might just be the one I’m looking for.  That’s the weird kind of relationship we have.  It’s sad to say that you’ve taken up such a big part of my life, but with all the money, thought, and selection I’ve gone through with you – it’s fair to say that you’re one of the most important things to me.  You’re my second skin – rip you away from me, and I’d be better off half dead.

In the past few days, I realized how stingy I can be with my clothes.  Now, I’m the type of person that’ll share pretty much anything with anyone, especially my close friends.  When my suitemate asked to borrow some stuff for a party, I, of course, initially had no issues lending it to her.  But as I thought about it more and more, I just felt so much less of an individual.  My wardrobe is me…bits and pieces of me.  Each item has memor(ies) associated with it, and when seen on another person, it no longer feels as if I own them.  Perhaps I’m completely overreacting, but any of you fashionistas out there feel the same way?

But, I got it all solved.  I tried to come off as not bitchy as possible, and of course, her being the understanding friend she is, took it all rather well.  I’m glad we’re able to have this kind of friendship.  Now, for some pieces of “individuality” (although I admit, not too much thought went into this outfit), here’s some pictures for y’all.

P.S.  Jen’ll probably kill me for posting this…but here’s a fun fact on the topic of individuality.  Back in 8th grade, she had started sketching her own (short-lived) fashion line by the name of individuality. :)
