It got me thinking: How long do other women hang on to clothing? For me it depends on the item. As I've said before, I'm more likely to keep investment pieces like blazers and cashmere for a long time. Items like silk tops are tougher to keep in good shape for that long...or maybe I am just hard on my clothes! One thing I am not is a pack rat. If it doesn't fit my body or my life anymore, out it goes without any regret from me. But if it continues to look good, year after year, I will keep an item for as long as I still love it. What about you? How long do you keep your clothing?
Do you like my giant snowman in the righthand corner of the picture? My husband loathes it, but the boys love it...so out it comes every year! Thanks for visiting!
