Just how old ?

Do you ever stop to think how old the garments
you are wearing are ? 
How long they have been in your closet ?

Well today I did. In fact I am going to make it an
all week long thing. 
I am going to try and remember how long ago I bought 
the item I wore- and you are welcome to join by trying to remember
how long ago you bought those shoes you are wearing.

Da Moda black tank - Wild Girl black and white printed pants -
ENC Rich Hippie Chic Commune white jacket - Nicole Lee bag - Fergalicious beige pumps

Today's outfit is mostly new - with one exception.

The black tank and printed pants are from August 2011
the Fergalicious pumps were an April 2011 purchase.
The Nicole Lee bag is early 2010 and finally my white
jacket is at least 8 or 9 years old.

Let me tell you I have gotten every single penny out of that jacket.
In fact I think I owe it money !

That jacket is one I would buy if I could find it. I really like the cut and especially the collar.

LOL Lorena! And you will get plenty more wear out of that jacket. I applaud you because it's WHITE! Usually that's hard to keep. Good for you, because it looks great. And I love your printed pants! :D

Such a fantastic jacket, I love items that can stand the test of time like that.

I'm barefoot, but yesterday I wore what I think is the oldest item of clothing I own, a long sleeved Guess t-shirt I ordered from a Spiegel catalog back in 1999 to celebrate some weight loss. I still don't want to give it up.

I really like those pants, lately i've been feeling drawn to black and white printed pants... i might have to find myself a pair.

Hope your jacket doesn't make you pay up ;)

Chic on the Cheap

i can usually remember when and where i bought an item. i oddly associate clothes with moments. ex. this is the shirt i wore when i broke up with so and so.

Interesting idea. I love that jacket. It is very classic.

I am currently wearing flip flops I bought this summer:)
