i guess to some people it sounds hokey but i think it's pretty realistic considering energy is transferable and forceful and for all intents and purposes "real".
so, i guess what i'm getting around to is wondering what affect wearing someone else's clothes (thrifted) has on us, if any. what memory or power can those clothes hold, if any?
i mean, we all have an article of clothing, or maybe even a whole outfit, that despite how it looks just makes us feel good.... some people even have lucky articles. but what about the negative or sad emotions tied to clothes? i can't even tell you how terrible i feel thinking about the navy blue sailor dress we bought for me to wear to my dad's funeral all those years ago. the clothing itself holds that emotion - that sadness.
while thrifting yesterday, i was struck by an old party dress that immediately made me feel sad. i saw it and just wanted to cry. something about knowing someone wore it a long time ago and probably loved it and felt so pretty in it and now it's stained and torn and just been tossed aside... i dunno - it just got to me. especially the little bunny pin tied to it....
so tell me: do you get "vibes" off thrift store clothes? do imagine their lives before you bought them? do you have a really happy memory of a particular item of clothing?
or am i just being sentimental and weird? (it's totally possible.)
