Seeing new clothes on the shelves of today’s stores can make me cringe as they are now making me think of times before my own time. We all know it happens – clothes cycle through their fazes and come back to be trendy when they were so gawd-awful when we were young. I was never one to wear the style if I didn’t like it and was often looked down upon for it.
But while others were looking down I was always look up knowing that I was strong enough to be who I was when I was that person. This edition is not about trends as much as it is about remembering the clothes, your favourite outfit from years ago, that you would SO wear now! Even if it wasn’t “cool” then or now.
I’ll always remember my brown cords with the tight cording and only slight bell bottoms that went so perfectly with a type of lycra darker brown shirt with white flowers. To complete it I had a cord jacket, bought separately from the pants but a perfect match and wonderful on the cooler spring days.
The outfit was something I had over 10 years ago but I often wonder why I can’t find something like it now. Maybe it has something to do with not being comfortable wearing tight shirts anymore but it makes me wonder if everyone had that favourite thing they wished they fit in now.
Not so much because you wish you were skinnier, braver or still looked good in a certain colour but an outfit or piece of clothing that made you feel so comfortable and fit your personality so well you wore it so often you wore it out.
Even though I’m female I really only enjoy shopping when I can relax with what I’m spending and what I’m spending it on. If a store opened with a bigger size of the clothes we used to where I’d shop there – would you?
