When I go through the closet purging mode, I always come to this blazer-jacket thing and debate on it. Sure, it gets worn once a year, if that, but it fit greats, the fabric feels wonderful, and it’s just so different (in a good way, at least to me). Ben found it in a Texas thrift store for me long ago (back when thrift stores weren’t so picked through), and I’ve only worn it a handful of times, but it’s just of those things I can’t give up. According to those promoting a minimalism wardrobe, it getting worn once a year probably means it needs to be moved on, but I really just can’t.
I think it’s just one of those pieces my girls might pick up one day when they fit it, and say, “Wow! Mom, this is so cool!” But then again, I could be wrong, and they say, “Mom, this is hideous. Why’d you keep it?!” Who knows?! I guess it will be an experiment of sorts and we will see what happens on that “one day.” I’m pretty good at letting go and purging my closet, but for now this jacket stays. Do any of you have any pieces like this that you think of getting rid of, but don’t?
Oh and these black shoes of mine are one of my faves! It might be my best deal ever as I scored it at the thrift store for just 2 buckaroos!
