How are you all doing?
I managed a little shopping last Tuesday, and picked up two dresses and a cute and sassy pair of trousers. I'll be showing them in the next few weeks, so do stop back as they're all very stylish.
You might recall me saying I'd sorted some of my clothes, so whilst going through my drawers folding and sorting it occurred to me that one outfit in particular stood out for the fact I've had it so long! Which led me to this blog post .....
What's the Oldest Thing you Own?
It seems few of us keep clothes over the years and even fewer keep or can find old photos in them! I'd asked a few blogging friends if they'd like to share in my post today, but many hadn't kept any clothes and the others didn't have or couldn't find any photos of them wearing them. Such a shame as it would have been really good to see some of you sporting your old pieces and even better if you're still wearing them now! - is it only me that finds it hard to get rid of old favourites? Do any of you still have any old items lurking around? Do you have any old photos featuring them? Please share if you do - don't make me feel alone - lol.
Back in the day (1980's) you possibly remember Club Sports or possibly Sam Suits? For those of you who don't they were toweling/velour tracksuits, shorts sets & even skirts, jackets or jumpsuits. They were very popular in London & surroundings and were seen on many trendy girls when casually dressed. My FIL decided to try his hand and started his own business JAB sports (his initials) and I had plenty of clothes and loved each and every one of them - but this is my favourite purely because it hasn't dated and still looks okay in the summer!
So this is one of the oldest things in my wardrobe, my beloved lilac shorts set. It's been on nearly every holiday I've been on and always without exception is worn EVERY summer, although now relegated to the grass cutting attire. I couldn't find the exact photo I wanted among the boxes I have stored. It's a picture outside our first house with two of the children, I had intended to take a photo in the same position, but as I couldn't find the photo there was no point!
This is rather poignant picture, because this is my daughter who's now in her 30's. We were in L'Escala at my FIL's villa, we went nearly every year with the children and visiting Spain is like going home, although I have to add every time we went it rained!!! Below that is my grand-daughter - her daughter at about the same age - how time flies when you're having fun living life!
I've somewhat filled this short set out over the years, and even though it's had a few new lengths of elastic through the waist band it still looks as good as new! The kids hate me wearing it, but I'm reluctant to get rid of it because it holds lots of memories for me, and hey if I can still fit into it - then what's the rush - lol!
This photo literally melts my heart - there's just nothing like having grandkids, they make life worth living. xxxx
