Turns out I got way more use out of the t-shirt than I ever did out of the boyfriend. Que sera sera!
I love that attitude! I started buying better shoes/boots when I moved to Texas. I got a good pair of cognac-colored riding boots in 2001 that I still get compliments on; however, I had to have them resoled (which is sometimes necessary).

Glad to see I'm not the only one


I do have some 30 year old ratty tshirts from concerts and don't feel like discarding but I don't wear 'in public".

My US Army field jacket that was issued to me in July 1966.


I still wear it on occasions during cooler weather.

Some of my Manolos are over 20 years old. One pair in particular from 1993.

I use my grandmother's Hermes Kelly bag from the 1960s.

As far as clothing, since I moved to South Florida and given away all my wool, notta.

Leather coats and jackets. Some getting a little snug, though. I gave my son and daughter some of the older ones, as they're skinny bods can still fit into them.

2 pair of all cotton low rise boot cut Levi's jeans I bought in the 90's. They are still the most figure flattering of any pants I own, and have developed a natural (as opposed to a fake treatment) wear to them. One pair is black, the other blue. The black pair has about worn through on an inner thigh, but it will live on as a pair of cutoffs when it finally give way. 20+ years old.

A 15 year old pair of Doc Martin's. They were the most expensive item id ever bought up to that point, but my best friend had a pair, and I just had to have a pair myself. Lost touch with the friend, still have the shoes. So well made!
