Ode to the Little Black Dress

You might have that go to outfit that takes you back to a time and place in life.  Maybe it’s a dress or a suit that’s been hanging in your closet for more years that can count that you have an emotional attachment too. 

Honoring that piece today.  I’m thankful that I don’t have to keep up with high fashion like what’s going on during New York Fashion Week.

Ode to the little Black Dress

You take me into another life

A world without responsibilities

A world where I need a little purse with just a credit card and lipstick

A world that is simple, no pressure of high fashion, just a great dress, that I got at a great price

You forgive my imperfections.

You’ve been with me to every party and wedding I’ve been invited to in the past 15 years.

You found me in college

You were with me on bad dates and good dates, marriage, and now only God knows what's next.

You’ve hung in more closets than I can count.  

My first apartment, My first house.

You haven’t always fit.

The years of having babies separated us for a while,

But you’re back. 

You and me, we’re good together.

I look forward to taking you out again soon…

...what piece of clothing do you have an emotional attachment to and why?

I have an emotional attachment to this horrendously hideous dress that was never in style. It has a rainbow of colors and I have never worn it. Yet still it hangs in my closet and I just can't bring myself to get rid of it. I think the reason that it is still hanging there is because it was the first thing my sister ever made for me. She gave it to me when she was ten and I was 15 its been twenty years and I still can't seem to get rid of it.
