I could be the least sentimental person on the planet. I have no clothing from the 60’s. Not a single thing. I’m glad to hear that some of you do. 🙂
Rita Moreno not only kept her West Side Story gown from 1962; she can still wear it despite all of the changes our bodies undergo between our 20’s and our later years. I thought she looked gorgeous at the Oscars.
I threw out the question yesterday whether any of you still have clothing from the 60’s or 70’s — that you wear, or simply that you keep for sentimental reasons. The answer is yes. 🙂
Friends and regular readers Katie and Ada both have their wedding gowns from that era. Katie wore her dress later at a costume party. Ada’s wedding gown is “preserved” in a box. Ada, have you ever taken it out of the box? Wondering what it would look like after all these years. Friend and regular reader B. has a cardigan sweater that she knitted herself, the one and only, that a friend’s grandmother taught her to make. B. doesn’t wear the sweater, but can’t bear to donate it.
Come on, readers, fess up. Do you keep old things and enjoy having them? Or are you more like me — let go and move on?
