 Anyone else have a piece of clothing that has been in their closet for AGES! I'm talking pushing 6, 7, 8, possibly 9 years? Am I the only crazy person that just won't let a few things go? Well, this sweater is one of them. I bought it in two colors in high school and I still have both colors...okay, I lied - I have a striped one too, but I like that one far less than my pink and blue versions. I still have no intention of getting rid of them anytime soon... (Hoarder.)


  1. YES. You're not crazy! :)

  2. I have a couple of pieces that are 10+ years. Sometimes I wish I could keep everything for my daughter but she's only 2 and I just don't have the room.

  3. I love those closet pieces. They are tried, tested, and true.

  4. I do own a pair of basic tops that are still as good as the day I bought them and that was like 8 years ago! That sweater is amazing, the bold pink is so much fun. Love it paired with white for the summer.

    Cee. ♥

  5. These days, I feel like Melissa posts on your blog more than you post on your own. I might have to stop following you on bloglovin' because I am NOT a fan of her writing or her outfits... Why doesn't Melissa post her outfits on her own blog?

  6. Loving the chambray on white!


  7. Nothing makes me feel more stylish and resourceful than stuff I have had literally forever! I am down to my last few pieces from middle school (yeah, that's 10 years) but it makes me feel excellent, like who knew I had such a great style in 7th grade! Of course, that skirt that once fit my waist is now high-waisted...details! Great sweater, I bet it will serve you for another 5 years!
