Our clothes can hold good memories and bad memories of the experiences we had when wearing them at the time. Just like a particular smell can be a reminder of an friend's scent, a taste of spices in food that can remind you of your mother's secret beef recipe or just the song that remind you of your first love, whether these reminders have good or bad memories they have a lasting effect on a persons life. If the experience was good, a person will constantly fill their life with things that remind them of that experience to keep up that wonderful memory, and if the experience was bad, the person can avoid in all accords the smell, taste or sound of that reminder.
In my case this white dress with cherry red trim is a reminder of my broken heart that I'm still mending. My Russian ex boyfriend whom I thought was the love of my life adored me in this dress, since the break up I haven't worn this dress for two years because it reminded me of him. I would hide it behind layers of my clothes so that I don't see it. While doing some closet cleaning I saw it and I finally realized that I have held on for too long to the disappointment of the relationship that I have to embrace the possibilities of the future and move on.
