I've been hanging onto this Rebecca Beeson blouse for almost 15 years now.
She's only been rocked a couple of times but each and every moment brings back fond recollections of carefree summers sunning on vacay or afternoons spent shopping 'til I dropped.

In the past decade, I've attempted to sell it on a multiple number of occasions without any luck. Each time vendors pass on such a perfect little piece, I can almost hear myself sigh a breath of nervous relief because on the one hand, I'd only wish for her to find a fun and loving home that appreciates her worth, but on the other, I've been training myself to trade off the old to make room for the new. 

Brought her out again last week and I must say, thank the lord/Buffalo Exchange/Crossroads/Wasteland that I now get another shot at spending some QT with my weathered and worn beauty.

Clothing may come and go, but sartorial memories sure do last a lifetime. 

Do you have any garments in the closet that you cannot bring yourself to give up?...
Even if you haven't worn it for weeks/ months/ years? Do tell :D

  13. I adore the sleeves of that blouse and the interior design images you paired with the look ... so cool! I have an army green pair of wide leg canvas material pants I've had since high school. I've gone through phases of fitting in them and not fitting in them, but I will never get rid of them. I also cling to my mother and my stephmother's older vintage style pieces, so I guess you could say I won't even give their stuff up!

Maybe Ill wear it one more time this winter. I also cant bring myself to get rid of my summer sundresses. I just get sick of seeing them but I feel like Id be throwing out friends. Im such a baby. LOL.

  22. Great title. I love the idea of red over dark denim. Nice!
