Today I write a letter to my clothes, and a few other inanimate things that have made my everyday life better. Not in the same universe as people and pets, not even close, but these have served me well, kept me covered, and safe.
(and I include you vintage, cashmere or silk pieces that I don’t wear nearly enough)
Thanks for being there, for suiting me just so, and keeping at least one area of my life low-stress. Thanks for being so affordable and accessible in the big scheme of life, and putting a smile on my face. Even when I have to replace you, I’m grateful you were there for me.
Denim jacket, because you are always on-trend (we don’t care about trends but it’s true), you have an easy-going personality and you look good over everything, from silky sundresses to turtlenecks.
Thanks to my oxfords and funky boots, you help give my mostly-neutral wardrobe a kick. You’re surprisingly cute with dresses and skirts, and make me look like I have an opinion (I do).
Cuffed jeans: You’re the best jeans I’ve had in years (Loft jeans), you’re just the right length and width, and you don’t get all stretched out. And your cuffs always look well-done.
Hair that’s thinning. I almost never thank you, because well: thinning. But you’re easy to fluff and go, you love the rain and humidity. I really appreciate your silvery goodness. And an additional thank you to Toppik for blurring my thin spots.
Super soft old tee shirts. You are the best. I might wear one of you every day, if I didn’t have to take an occasional pic for the blog. You’re my reliable friends who migrate from out-to-dinner outfit, to jeans and sneakers, and finally to bed-only. Thanks for always being around, and costing less $$$ than lunch.
