Clothes become part of who you are, your memories, your life. Which is why when Chris leaves town for a day or two, I'll sneak into his closet and wear something of his so I can feel close to him. He doesn't get it, he thinks I have enough clothes (um, is there such a thing?) so why rummage through his stuff, but by wearing something that is Chris's I feel connected to him. Maybe this is the grown up equivalent to wearing your boyfriend's varsity jacket? Whatever the reasoning - Chris, I wore your checkered shirt while you were away. Here it is. Deal with it, bud.
So tell me, do you guys feel all sentimental about clothing the way I do? When my dad was sick, I started wearing one of his old sweaters around the house. I always wear pieces of jewelry my mom gives me. When I see a friend I haven't seen in a while, I'll make sure to wear something that gave me, or might have a special meaning for her. Am I alone on this?
I also have to thank so many of you who shared your thoughts on ethical uses of Photoshop on yesterday's post. Loved reading what you guys thought.
