"Love Who You Are"
Location: Left side of back
The story: I have a vintage dress-form mannequin with Edgar Allan Poe's handwriting along the side, which reads, "Love who you are." I got it for a few reasons: because I love fashion/design and wanted to commemorate it, as an ode to one of my favorite literary time periods/authors, and as a reminder never to change myself as a way of keeping up with (or attempting to please) other people.
