I had an unexpected chunk of free time today, so I decided to visit my formal clothes in their guest room closet, despite my unwashed hair and undone face. Anybody else doing this?

I tried a lot of stuff on, and it was gratifying to see that things are fitting and I still like everything! Some items belonged to my mom, some go waaay back to cheap sparkly outfits for grad school parties.

When I look at this closet I think “why do I have so MUCH??!?” but in normal life I actually do need to attend a lot of events. It’s just that there are no events now, so the clothes seem like such a waste of space! And the shoes….man, I hardly ever wear shoes anymore.

It was fun to visit these things and imagine a time when I can wear them again. Not so fun: now I have to put it all away again….
