66. Tell us about something in your closet that you keep but never wear. What is it, why don’t you wear it, and why do you keep it?
A skirt, that I sew for me. I thought I would need a black pencil skirt. No I don't, but I keep it because I made it (fool).
I have a raincoat, yellow slicker style, i just thought would be useful but have never used
dress with a too deep cleavage
I've been throwing everything out. Though I do have my prom dress. I don't know why.
I have this white sheer dress that is embroided with bright coloured flowers and birds. It looks sort of Frieda Kahlo or Peruvian mountain girl. It is super cool. I bought it when I was 16 and was developing my own sense of style that was different to the style of my peers. I can't bring myself to get rid of it even though it doesn't fit anymore. It's a dress I would buy now or still wear if I could, and I think that's why I want to keep it - to remind myself that this is the sort of thing that I like and that is "me".
A French maids uniform...... I keep it so when I get another boy friend I can wear it
I have something from my grandmother. It doesn't even fit me,I just miss her.
A peach coloured dress. I had modified it but it is too short to wear in public. It's more of a stay inside with your lover for a romantic evening type dress. I also need to hem it up.
A fox stole worn by my grandmother that is shedding and completely no good anymore. I should bury it. It is gorgeous and doesn't smell, but it sheds too much to restyle or wear ever again. It's over 75 years old.
I have a bunch of wool coats that I thrift-ed at the end of a particularly cold winter and I haven't really worn because it wasn't really cold enough for them. But I had them all dry-cleaned and shipped from where I bought them, so I can't get rid of them.
I keep a few ees that I'm too fat to wear, hoping I will lose the weight
A vintage leopard hat. Everyone seems to hate it and I feel a bit ashamed about it.
It is a waistcoat i made myself some years ago, looks like a sort shepherd waistcoat (like the sheepskin one without the sheepskin), i like how i made it and the finishing and all, but seriously how to wear it when you live in a city?
I have a quite a few black dresses which I bought because I liked but then remember I look funeral in. Its a serial problem. But I hang on to them incase someone dies; which is morbid.
Some pieces i have that don't fit me but i've kept them anyway because i like them. Why? Good question, maybe i'm trying to get up the courage to get rid of them. Maybe i'm hoping i'll fit them one day.
I also have clothing for special occasions that i rarely wear: for downhill skiing and a little black dress.
