I really like you. In fact, I'm quite attached to you. I would feel as though I were betraying you if I asked you to change. You are truly important to me. If it weren't for you, I would not be able to stand up straight and hold my head high. If it weren't for you, I would not be able to be there for other's to lean on for support. If it weren't for you, I wouldn't have been able to do all of those cheerleading stunts when I was in high school. If it weren't for you, who would have helped me to shoulder the burdens that go along with being a mommy, wifey, and "Miss" (i.e. teacher)? I need you S.
But if you don't mind, may I please ask one teensy-weensy favor? You see this dress that I wore today? Well, I really like the outfit that I put together (I especially love the belt), but I would really love to wear this dress without the cardigan. You know how people say that "the mirror has two faces"? Well, I think my mirrors are just two-faced. I tried to style the dress with some slight changes for a different look, and while I preened in front of the mirror, I kind of liked the altered look, too.
But then I looked at the pictures and couldn't see anything but you. As much as we've been through together, I think it's a little inconsiderate of you to force me to wear this dress again with a cardigan. Spring is here. Summer is around the corner. And I want to wear spaghetti straps out in public da**it!!! I mean, you seem to get along fairly well with my sleeveless tops, but I can't imagine what the pictures will say if I wore a halter or strapless top (I'm sure the mirrors would lie, though). Can you help me with that please? Can you just, I don't know, minimize your appearance if/when I try to wear those items? But please don't take that personally. You are still a huge part of my being.
Thank you, S. I appreciate you allowing me to share my feelings with you. After all, if the only thing that comes out of this is that from now on I have to continue to wear cardigans over spaghetti-strapped tops and dresses, well, so be it. I'll live with that. At least you and I will still have each other's shoulders to cry on. Well, sort of.
Here are a few more pics where S and I were actually getting along:

Silk Dress w/double drawstring waist - Gap (Summer 2010)
Belt - Forever21 (recent purchase for $5.99)
