Old but Gold

Hi readers, I hope you’re all well! It’s a Bank Holiday in the UK so it’s a day off work!!!

From time to time I go through my clothes deciding which should stay and which should go to another home (eBay, charity, Nigeria). Usually they are old, maybe out of fashion, but wearable.

So this weekend I have been sorting out my clothes and shoes and have just about finished. However I noticed that there were some items that, even though I have had for quite a bit of time, I still wear them and I’m not sure if I could actually let them go:

Purple Batwing Jumper - Dorothy Perkins
Bought in Winter 2008 (on sale!)

Green Batwing Jumper - Dorothy Perkins
Bought Winter 2008 (again on sale)

I loved the batwing jumper so much that when I saw it green I did not hesitate to buy it….if there were other colours in my size at the time I would have hit them up too!

Gold Jumper - Dorothy Perkins
Bought Winter 2007

What can I say? Dorothy Perkins had some quality clothes back in the day; all the jumpers are still in fab condition nearly 4/5 years later!

Caterpillar Logger Boots
Bought Autumn 2006
These boots are probably my most expensive purchase to date; I believe they were £110, but as I was a student at the time, I managed to negotiate a price of £95. These boots have served me so well during the Winter months every year and the random snow days that London has from time to time!

Converses - bought in 2005 and still going strong baby!!

I think that the above items would actually have to fall apart before I could finally let them go........

Do you have any ‘Old but Gold’ items?
