I dreamed that I went into my garden and there were rails and rails of dresses along the boarders where the flowers should be, I went to look through them and I found one that looked my size and it was beautiful but an old style dress so I took it indoors to try it on. I put it on and loved it, it was so elegant and silky, then when I looked in the mirror at myself I saw that the dress had lots of security tags on it and that it was actually ripped, tatty and worn, I was upset because I really thought I had found a levelly dress.
Clothes can represent how we feel about ourselves, they reflect the us we wish to share with the world, this can change on a daily basis and to suit the other people around us.
It never fails to amaze me how perfect dreams are in their creation, anyway the tatty worn out dress symbolizes how you feel at the moment, sometimes our bodies and minds get worn out.
The garden is a way to tell you that nature has taken its course and time has worn you out.
The mirror is reflecting how you actually feel about yourself and even though you are 'beautiful' when you look in the mirror you just see worn out.
The security tags symbolize that something is locked to you now, this is probably your youth and the fact that you cannot reverse the affects that time and life in general has had upon you.
When we think about flowers we think of beauty, you have replaced your flower beds with dresses and this is what you think makes you beautiful, (beauty is actually on the inside and gained through what you do for others spiritually speaking) you worry about how you look or on how others see you.
I know this translation will not offend you because we have spoken about this dream and you told me that this is exactly how you feel right now.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and age is but a number.
