Brown leather jacket, single breasted, blazer type shape from River Island about 18 years ago. DP calls it the 'Donnie Brasco'. Has been scrunched up, danced on and generally abused in every pub in Edinburgh. Doesn't fit any more but I will never part with it.
60s hooded cardigown. Knitted, fair isle style. Nicked it from my Mums wardrobe a few years back much to my sisters annoyance. I always get asked where its from. I love it and its a staple of my winter wardrobe! Not doing too bad considering it's nearly 50 years old! Blimey!
ABBA tshirt from 1980 the photo on it is from the Arrival album my dcs like to wear it. A 'I am 5' nighty from 1978 which I wore until i was about 10 and still keep in my pj drawer. A black turtleneck from 1990 that I wear all the time.
1920's beaded flapper dress. Totally sheer silk crepe de chine, with tiny bugle beads sewn all over. Too delicate to be worn now, but I wore it to a roaring twenties themed party in a very naice London hotel many years ago. With a slip underneath naturally, for modesty. It was a real talking point because it's clearly original. I had 20's style satin shoes dyed to match it. It was a lot of fun walking down a grand staircase, making heads turn!
Tonight I wore a pair of Marc Jacobs boots from about 8 years ago, black suede, almond shaped toe kitten heel, haven't worn them in years. I reckon they are the oldest item of clothing I own. There are so many things I wish I had kept, but I travelled a lot and can't bare clutter.
