           We all have at least one clothing item that we have had for years, but we just can't get ourselves to give it away.  I call these items "oldies but goodies."  For me, that item is this brown faux leather vest.  I remember purchasing this at Hollister a long time ago.  Come to think of it, I believe I was in middle school when I bought it.  This vest has been in my closet so long that it is starting to look distressed and worn on the edges, but that's why I cannot give it away.  To me, the imperfections on it give the vest character.  No matter what anyone says, I'm gonna keep this vest until I cannot wear it anymore.  
           For today's outfit, I wore my "oldie but goodie" piece with a simple ribbed tank top from Forever 21, off-white jeans, and my nude wedge sandals.  To pull the outfit together, I wore mixed metal bracelets, a bronze cuff and necklace.  Let me know in the comments below what your "oldie but goodie" clothing item is.  Sending you lots of love this Friday from my heart to yours!

  2. Looking at it, I can tell why you want to keep it. I would do the same. It's a really nice vest. I have a few items too that have stood the test of time really well and have become a part of my wardrobe that I can count on to look good on me and go with a wide range of others- simple but elegant.
