Mixing and remixing is such a fun part of fashion. I seriously have items in my wardrobe that date back to high school. (Hello LBD dress I wore for my Senior Tea!!!)
To me this says a couple of things. 1) My sense of personal style (while still evolving) has some bearing on who I was even back then and those foundations have very much carried over into how I dress today.
2) Quality of clothing really does make a difference, in eventuality, because the longevity of clothing-life is, to a certain extent, contingent upon the quality of the garment to begin with!
In other words, I still have this same dress that dates back 15 years because it is well made. Therefore, baring stains or snags or chain saws, things you can’t account for. It is worth looking at clothing not simply from a cost standpoint, but from a quality perspective as well.
I’ve already worn this shirt more than a handful of times, and the outfit options just. keep. coming. Definitely a win. Do you have any pieces in your wardrobe you’ve had for a good while? Why do you keep them? How do they fit into your current fashion schema?
