Loved Angie's post today...I love to see quality pieces that fit into people's lives and go the mile!

My impressive piece is probably the first quality item I ever bought - a Jax II check midi sheath dress from Eaton's when it was going out of business in 1997. I was 21. It is the perfect mix of cotton and stretch, it ALWAYS FITS and always looks polished, and always feels comfortable. It never wrinkles and travels well - it can be layered over and under for year-round wear. It's perfect.

I have worn this dress to death year-round for 21 years amd it is still gong strong.

At 21, I used to wear it with a short sleeved viscose drapey cardigan, pearls and stilettos (can you tell I was trying to look grown up?) 

Then I wore it with a short sleeve knit inside and a rhinestone brooch.

Now I most often wear it with a thin black turtleneck inside, a leather moto and black boots. 

And it is still going strong! I literally had to put it away last winter because I was wearing it so much.And this from the woman who never wears the same outfit twice.

If you had to do a tribute to a shining star in your wardrobe, what would you pick and why?
