Well they say keep a thing for 7 years and if its not used in that time throw it out Think Think Think Think

Very glad I didnt listen to that-- I have just looked out the outfit I wore to a wedding a 'long' time ago and it still fits and its not out of fashion either and I still have the hat, shoes and handbag to match too. It was expensive when I bought it and at the time I really thought twice before buying it.

So I'm really glad I kept it becasue I just hate shopping for clothes.
So that's me sorted out for one of my outings!!

One more outfit to find for an outing on Friday, so before going to the shops I'm going through my wardrobe!!
I'm much happier wearing my gardening clothes -- pity it wasnt a fancy dress outing.Dancing Dancing

Glad to hear you didn't throw out something that came back in style. My wife and daughter as well as my sisters still wear some of the stuff my Mom made back in the last depression.

Personally I dont see anything wrong in using clothes you've had for ages so long as you feel comfy in them.
I think, with me not throwing things out is because when I was young there wasnt the money there to be spent on clothes, food was more important, and clothes were passed down from cousins etc and it was like Christmas twice over if I got something brand new and I didnt want to ever grow out of it.
So I guess old habits die hard!
There was a saying here during WW2 'Make Do and Mend' and that's just what people had to do.
Well just one more day to go and that outfit I've found will see the light of day once again Dancing Dancing Dancing
