You're probably wondering what part of my outfit is the piece from that dark hole of my closet that I never wear. It's the sweater. Remember when long sweaters were cool and all the rage? Yeah, a long, long time ago. I've had this sweater since then. My boyfriend I have been dating for nearly nine years and I know I bought it right around the time I met him (actually, I think I bought it to wear on one of our first few dates!) so, yeah, it's THAT old. Why do I still own it? Sentimental reasons. OK, I put it out there, I'm one of those people. I couldn't let this sweater for for the pure fact that I bought it around the time he and I started dating so it always brings me back to those days.
Honestly, I have probably not worn this sweater for years. It's been moved from apartment to apartment to apartment in the last four years. It's gone with me to college and back. And yet I haven't worn it for years. Is that silly or what? But, you know what? I like it worn with this dress! I think it looks pretty darn good! Long sweater over long dress? Yes, please!
Do you have pieces in your closet that you haven't worn for years but just can't seem to let go? What is your reasoning?
