Dated: SS ‘19
I’ve been thinking of this moment for a while now, with so many thoughts and not enough words to put down. When I finally sat down to type it out, I paused, and thought, that you deserved better. Deserved more than an email or a message. So with this handwritten note, I want to share what I’m feeling.
We’ve had some crazy, fun adventures together, haven’t we? Remember that day when we painted those signs for a friend? There was colour all over you! Splashes of it! But you just made it look absolutely cool! That other time when I got into a pen fight, and you were there, again, to take the ink for me, quite literally.
Although our adventures have been plenty, there were also those regular boring days. Long walks, typical workdays and even semi-formal pair-ups for travel, you were a part of each of them. A part I could always rely on. It’s moments like these that I’m always going to remember. From heartbreaks to hustle days, from dirt to even some drinks (*wink) you’ve seen all my sides.
The absolute base for all my dance nights and impromptu plans – when I really didn’t wanna step out, you dragged me out of bed. Whether it was a hike at dawn or even an all-nighter study session, you’ve been spot-on. And let’s not even mention those class bunks, sleepovers and trips that you’ve kept secret. It writes a denim memoir in itself.
You’ve seen me grow as a person and in my style too. From those poncho shirts, crop tops to off-shoulders, you’ve perfectly paired with all of my wardrobe changes. From those leather boots, casual shoes, to flats and stilettoes – and you’ve never let my confidence falter. And I am so glad that you were my companion. My confidant.
But, like how all things end, we’ve come to a close too. We’ve made a lot of memories together, but I feel that now’s the time to create some new ones. Moving on is difficult. Cause how will I ever find something as perfect as you? Your solid shade and the classic cut… I’m already reminiscing. I know it’s tough for you, it is for me too. But I think it’s the right time to start something new. To move on. To experiment, to add some more colour, to create new memories and most of all, to grow.
I know you don’t want to hear it but I think you should know. I owe you that! This season, I’m going to try bleached denim. I know it’s difficult, but I hope you can accept it.
I hope you can understand.
You’ll always be with me.
Lots of Love,
