Ephron showed us that having bizarrely strong attachments to clothes was entirely normal (and not “unhealthy” as many of her male counterparts might say) in her script for Love, Loss, and What I Wore, a play adaptation of the 1955 Ilene Beckerman book of the same name. Celebrities ranging from Jane Lynch to Brooke Shields were part of the rotating roster of actors who took to the stage for the play, which described the ways women identify with their clothes. It gave us permission to reserve a quarter of our closet for “sentimental purposes” without any sense of shame.
