(ETA: not urgent. Angie, you can move this to WIW if you’d like.)

I’ve gone through too many moves and body changes for the oldest items in my wardrobe to be all that old, but I’m trying to wear items this week that have been in my closet since I started tracking wears in summer 2015.

These plaid ponte leggings were one of the first things I bought after joining the forum.

Why I’m about ready to pass on: They’re getting faded and I’ve already had to repair a seam in the thigh. Plus, the rise isn’t quite high enough for me, so they tend to roll/slide down my hips in an annoying way.

Why I still have them: I’m down to just one or two options for the long over lean silhouette. Being Team Silhouette, I’d like to find a replacement before purging. Also, as of today, these have 29 logged wears. I’m committed to #30wears unless there’s a really compelling reason to pass on immediately. And finally, I like the pattern. I don’t have a ton of plaid in my wardrobe anymore and it doesn’t really mesh with my current style goals, but I still like it.

Worn with:

Eileen Fisher blouse (23 wears) - btw,just in case you were wondering, there’s no big stain or discoloration on this top. That’s just a trick of the light.

Seychelles booties (13 wears)
