You know that ONE person you always want to talk to when somethings up be it good, bad, or legitimately just crazy? They will be there for you to laugh, cry, or raise a storm? You know they are your bff, your soulmate, your best bud, and no matter what they are straight up there for you.; they’re number ONE on your speed dial.
You probably also have a numero uno in you closet: the work horse of the season, the year, or even the decade. Nominated by the rest of your closet for going with everything, it’s always there to pick you up on down days, scold you when you say you have nothing to wear (despite the true amount of clothing you own adding up to a small department store), and to make you feel wonderful no matter what. That one piece is the epitome of you in clothing form- it can change moods faster than you can on period days, dress up or down, in or out, and chances are it’s a random piece you grabbed out of the sale bin without realizing the relationship you would form.
Oh the relationship- the worry free bliss of always turning to your closet bff; then disaster strikes: red wine, the dryer, a lost suitcase, bleach…… a moment in time and the safety blanket you turn to is ruined or gone forever.
So I say goodbye to my swing back white blouse who met a glass of wine it couldn’t resist last night. It felt a little like this:
Many outfits, many moments. I’ll miss your perfect fit and broken-in-ness (yes, people everywhere understand this term).
PS: While my closet needs time to readjust, yours just might need a new blouse love. (Click to shop!)
