One of the reasons I started doing this 30 for 30 for 12 Challenge is that I wanted to rediscover my love for my old clothes.Because I don't own anything more than 5 years old (due to my 50lb weight loss), the means pieces that aren't really all that old by most people's standards.
My Day 1 outfit is comprised of all "old" pieces:
I've had this green tuxedo-ruffled cotton blouse since at least 2008.
I first wore it on the blog here in Jun 2008, here in Sept 2008, here in Oct 2008, here in Feb 2009, here in March 2009, here in Aug 2009, here in Sept 2009, here (and here and here) in June 2010 for a wardrobe capsule challenge, and here in June 2011. Pretty sporadic for the last couple of years - it was even in the giveaway pile for a few months! I just can't seem to part with it. It's such a useful colour.
The vest was given to me by my co-worker Ruth at my old job.
Added the fabric rose:
The shoes have been in my closet since June 2008.
And yet, I've had all these pieces for at least 3 years together, and never worn them together! How about that?
