Sorting out my wardrobe I have so many (about 20) pieces of clothes that I bought last autumn/winter and never got round to wearing.
Luckily I tried them on and still love them but my friend said she wouldn't be seen dead in last years clothes ...
Opinions ?
Surely if the things are still in good condition what's the problem?
It's things that never go out of fashion (my wardrobe is basic central)
I'm not planning on throwing hundreds of pounds of clothes away

Are you joking?

She sounds cuckoo!
I wear clothes for years, I thought everyone did confused

Ha ha ha, last years, the year before, erm, some of my clothes are 5 years old!
Not a fashion icon me!

I wear last decades clothes if that helps. hmm

Mate I wear clothes from when I was a teenager and still at school... I left school 7 years ago. I'm not one of these people who wastes money buying new clothes to replace the previous year's clothing.

WTF I wear clothes from last century.

I've had my leather jacket for 10 years (no joke) and still love it..every autumn it comes out of the woodwork.
My friend is a lot more "cooler" than me.
Wanted to check I wasn't the only one

No, you have to burn everything three months after buying it.

Some of my clothes are from 15 years ago. Who is your friend? Victoria Beckham?

Is she Kim Kardashian West?

I'm wearing clothes that I owned before I was an adult. They're from a different eon, not a different season.

DelphiniumBlue Tue 23-Aug-16 20:47:27

Seriously? Who can afford to replace all their clothes every year?

Missanneshirley Tue 23-Aug-16 20:47:41

Sorry not helpful.
Yes, I wear clothes from last year, and the year before and the year before....
My eldest is 9 and I wear clothes older than her.
I'm pretty skint and most of these things came 2nd hand in the 1st place.
BUT if I didn't live in the real world, yes I'd love to refresh my wardrobe every season.
Wear what you like. And buy what you can afford!

My opinion is your friend is an arse, and trying to make you feel small.

Keep the clothes and bin the "friend"

Oh blimey, all my stuff is old! I think I bought 1 dress, 3 tops and some shorts for this summer.

Are you actually serious?

7to25 Tue 23-Aug-16 20:47:56

I have some from last century.

PurpleDaisies Tue 23-Aug-16 20:48:12

Seriously? How wasteful would it be to chuck out clothes after a year?

Who can honestly tell whether something is this seasons or last seasons?

Your 'Friend' is Rich or in debt!

My favourite jumper is over twenty years old.

user1471888857 Tue 23-Aug-16 20:48:17

The only things from last year I plan on getting rid of are a cheap pair of boots that have holes in the sole blush

Who can tell? Do they have the year printed on them?

iklboo Tue 23-Aug-16 20:48:23

I'm still wearing stuff I bought in the noughties. Hell, I have a jacket I bought for my 30th - well over a decade ago.

Does your friend think anyone actually notices or cares?

I have jeans older than high school kids ;)
