Well, it is official. I am old. I pulled a scarf out of my closet today that I have had for over 20 years. I am pretty sure that makes it vintage.
Vintage. From my very own closet.
Not vintage that I bought in a store, never worn by me, by some really cool, famous designer. Haute couture you know? Actually, I don’t know. I don’t own any high end designer stuff. The closest I have come is purchasing a Coach bag from the outlet but that’s it.
This scarf was purchased for me as a Christmas present in the late 80s. Yes, the 80s. The horrible decade of fashion. It sounds implausible that I kept something from the 80s that might be considered fashionable today AND appropriate for a woman of my age. I have kept it because it is a kind of classic print although I haven’t worn it in many, many years.
Today I broke it out to wear with a sweater. It looked awesome. It’s just too bad that I realized I had something in my closet I have owned long enough to be vintage. My joy turned to shock. How did this happen?
On a positive note it does pay to keep the classic items in your wardrobe. Especially your accessories.
