To All the Dresses I Have Loved Before

To All the Dresses I have Loved Before

Dear dresses,

I have loved you immensely. I have been obsessed with you and have taken care of you above and beyond everything else.

Now that you’re hidden underneath my unflattering black abaya, don’t feel shy; don’t be disheartened; don’t fear negligence. You will still be just as important. After all, I didn’t wear you to impress others or shows off. My love was pure and I adorned you to feel good about myself and will continue to do so.

With Love,

Shabana Mukhtar

PS: In celebration of valentine’s week.
