Time to declutter my clothes, I must do it, but can I really throw away my Jeff Banks jacket from 1970? Yes, you read that correctly, 1970. And it still fits!! But I will probably never wear it again. Is it time for eBay maybe? Then there are my Levi's from the same year. They don't fit. And goodness, a Laura Ashley full length dress. Too scared to try that on! I distinctly remember buying the dress from one of the first Laura Ashley shops that opened in Oxford in 1972.
Why have I kept these three items? Because of the names I suppose. And the nostalgia element of where I wore the jeans,the jacket and the dress. They are far too good to give away and so well made too, that they still have pride of place in their cellophane wrapping in my wardrobe.
Happy memories of this Laura Ashley dress!
I wonder if we will still have some of our clothes we wear today in forty years time!
