What’s the oldest piece of clothing you own?
Style blogger Angie recently wrote about the golden oldie items in her closet.
In an era of throwaway fashion and where purging our closets to minimal status is popular, it makes me feel GREAT that I’ve had these pieces for years and am still wearing them with a happy heart….
You’ve probably heard the saying, “I’ve got ties older than you”. I’m sure I have clothes older than some of you. I got this faded hoodie about 35 years ago on my first visit to Yellowstone. (That was before they were called “hoodies”.)
Wedding gowns, special baby outfits, and team jerseys are some types of clothing often saved for sentimental reasons. Sturdy jeans and classic suits are saved for continual wearing.
What old clothes do you own? Do you still wear them? Are you an investment shopper, or more likely to buy the latest styles? Have you found yourself resurrecting old clothes that have been put away for a while? Do you keep some old clothes for sentimental reasons? Do you ever buy vintage clothing? Do old clothes make you feel old? Do you periodically clean out your closet? Maybe it’s as simple as “when in doubt, throw it out”?
