This week’s theme has been chosen by Sandra;
What's your favourite item of clothing, the one that you feel special in, the most "you" in, keep going back to, can be spotted in by friends from miles away, wear over and over and hope will never fall apart and die? Perhaps you've even had to darn it already? (There's to keeping an old craft alive!) It might be a scarf that you made, a pair of gorgeous red high heels, a vintage printed dress or even a pair of old pink flannelette pyjamas. Or it can be more than one!
I have two things in my wardrobe that came to mind immediately, both are a little worse for (lots & lots of) wear.
First is my lovely snugly brown jacket;
I’ve been doing it up with a massive safety pin for as long as I’ve had it I think… well… it was on sale!
I think everyone that knows me has seen me in this number at some point. The faux fur is looking rather scraggly, the woven bits are all coming loose, and it’s even coming apart at the collar (I really should fix that…), but I don’t care, I love it still.
The other thing, or things, are these boots;
I really don’t think they have much longer to live, if I’m honest. They are beyond scuffed – there are chunks of vinyl missing all over the place – and it’s a very sad state of affairs indeed – I love these boots! They have been on countless shopping trips, days at work, many nights out, a Big Day Out, park trips, beach trips, road trips…. whenever a good boot was called for, they were there!
The no-nonsense heel is perfect for hours on my feet and they were super comfy from the get go. Even though I think the places to wear these aging lovelies are limited, I doubt I’ll be able to part with them… I loved them so much when I bought them that I went back the next day and bought the same ones in black – they, strangely, are still in almost mint condition!
Thanks for a great theme Sandra! Visit Pip to play along!
