Mimi's Back!


Words cannot express what it feels like to be wearing my own clothes again! Today is the first day I get to wear an outfit comprised entirely of my own clothing. I had a shipment delivered over the weekend and was like a kid on Christmas morning! It took me no time to sort through it and hang it in the closet. Who knew I'd be so excited to see stuff I've been wearing for years? The old saying that absence makes the heart grow fonder definitely applies to me and my clothing. We're tight! Now, I don't yet have all of my closet, but I figured I wouldn't be needing summer stuff in the foreseeable future. I also have not gone through the many boxes of unsalvageable clothing yet. I think I will want to take my time and mourn, so to speak, the pieces that did not make it. I think seeing the items with my own eyes, seeing what state they are in, will help me accept the fact I no longer have them. I personally feel the exercise will give me some sort of closure. It will also allow me to make a list of things I will want to replace. But for now, I'm thoroughly enjoying the clothes I do have! It has never been more apparent to me that wearing something you love, gives you that extra boost of confidence. I am definitely smiling from ear to ear. My partner said it best when I came down the stairs today. He said: "You look like yourself again!" I could not have said it better myself! It's the small things!
