One of my wardrobe issues cropped up this week, actually in a good way on this occasion, but it made me think. My colleague was very admiring of my outfit which was a red top, cropped white pants, and little red crochet shoes. She said she thought it was so hard to match reds and these were perfect together. I said I have a red crochet cardigan as well which is an exact match but they were all bought many years apart.
No pic of the red top as it is in the wash, but same as cardigan/shoes in pic 1. I also have some vintage shoes shown in pic 2 for slightly more dressy looks, very similar colour too.
So dates are: cardigan 2013, vintage shoes bought 2014 but probably from the 80s, red crochet shoes 2015, red top 2022.
Does anyone else do this? I do it with other fave colours as well like olive (a fave since 2013) and cobalt (a fave for decades). And I guess fuchsia, where I can get it, a fave since the 80s. And bright yellow also since the 80s.
But often the oldest item begins to really wear out and you can’t replace it?
