Shirt and skirt: Thrifted — Sandals: 6pm.com (Dansko) — Ring: Target — Earrings: Hand-me-down


I think that this skirt is one of the oldest-to-me items in my wardrobe.


I say oldest-to-me because it was one of the first things I thrifted when I started in earnest a couple of years ago. Naturally, the vintage dress I have from the 1950s is chronologically older. (If it’s from a vintage store, is it technically “thrifted”? I feel like there’s a Venn diagram to be made here.)


I think it was originally from H&M before it fell into my hands at Goodwill, and for all that I’ve heard about that company’s shoddy workmanship, it’s held up wonderfully!


I’m pretty sure these earrings are also a few decades older than the skirt–and me, for that matter–but they came from my mom’s jewelry collection, so it’s not the same.

What’s the oldest-to-you item in your wardrobe?

    You ALSO have badass nails! Man, now I’m all inspired to do something with mine this weekend!

    I think my oldest item (that I wear regularly) is a t-shirt I got in Scotland in 2008. I was taking a month-long writing class and we were going to see a play in Edinburgh. I had literally nothing nice enough for a play (it was January in the UK and we packed pretty much nothing but sweaters and jeans), so I went shopping and found a pretty t-shirt. http://rubybastille.files.wordpress.com/2012/08/30dnr17_1.png
