Vintage Layer

I have had this blouse since high school. I'm pretty sure I wore it for my grade 10 pictures... I almost hate to admit it, but I was a fan of Hilary Duff's Lizzie McGuire character and the movie had come out around that time. I remember really loving this blouse because it resembled those she wore in the movie. The fluted sleeves and rushing details were sort of big in the early 2000s. Turns out they are making a comeback! Fashion is so cyclical that sometimes it is worth hanging onto those special items you really love. Chances are you will still love them when they become trendy again. The best part is you'll have a vintage piece and won't have to purchase a new item to be right on trend! I say it's a win-win! I don't advise on hoarding all of your clothes, but hang on to those pieces you really love. I did the same with a pair of high-waisted bell-bottom jeans and was really happy to have them when the trend made a comeback a couple years ago. What items to you hang on to in the hopes of them become trendy again?

P.S. Puppy wanted to play today, hence the stuffed duck in the first picture...
