So old it's new

I sometimes wish I took outfit photos back in the 80s and 90s just to see what I thought looked good back then! Some things I am sure would look completely dated, and some things, like this dress below would not.

dress: Benetton
cardi: Loft
shoes: Ann Taylor
earrings: gift'd
necklace: M+O
belt: H&M

I am quite sure that this dress is one the oldest articles in my wardrobe that I still wear on a consistent basis, especially since I started documenting my outfits. I mean, who really shops at Benetton these days? I remember why I bought it: to attend a wedding with my not-sure-if-I-should-call-him-boyfriend-now-husband, so I have a lot of fond memories associated with it. That was back in 1999! Now I feel old. :) Do you have any pieces of clothing that you especially love because of the memories tied with wearing it?

Even though the heat index here in H-town is around 110degrees, inside office buildings can feel like icebergs. So light layers can be useful.

That dress is so cute, and it actually quite modern looking. The oldest thing I probably own would be my black floor length trench. It's from my middle school goth years. I don't feel that it's ever gone out of style because it's never really been 'in'. (well according to runways, long coats are back in, go fig). But the coat fits me like a glove and I love it pieces and that's what is important. I've never heard of Benetton, but I think it's a fab dress.

The ensemble with the pop of orange is just too good to pass up. Ergo, it shall go into my Inspiration Folder.
