76. Did you ever buy an article of clothing without giving it much thought, only to have it prove much more valuable as time went on? What was the item and what happened?
My first pair of platforms ever. I sort of have an obsession. I became more and more attached and eventually bought some more. The rest is history.
Yes. It was about the dress I choose to wear at party.
That polka dot dress.
What is stunning is that I still fit it, 20 years and 40 pounds later, and it still kills.
I don't know that I have shoes I can say that about.
a pair of denim shorts. i never used to wear shorts. ever. but i went on holiday and i knew that i would overheat if i worn anything long, so i brought a pair of shorts. i wore them everyday and fell in love with them.
A black cotton cardigan, mens. I bought it second-hand, without much a thought. It became one of my favourites and I have bought a similar one later.
I have a pair of boots which were a last minute purchase but they have proved their worth
I have a green cable knit sweater I got out of a box in college. I like to wear it as a completer piece a lot of the time with a colorful oxford! I always think, actually "I can't believe I still have this I really like it." It's about 5 years old now.
I can't think of anything just yet. Perhaps my necklace made of wood salvaged from earthquake damaged houses in Christchurch - I think as time goes on that relic of the past will become more and more valuable.
