What is the oldest piece of clothing in your closet?

Yellow Keds

Everyone has an item in their closest that has been there for years. Maybe you never wear it. Maybe you should have thrown it away years ago. But for whatever reason you still have them.

Mine is a pair of kick ass Yellow Keds that I bought sometime in the 90’s. Yellow is my favorite color (are you starting to figure out the blog name now?). And when I saw these little beauties I just knew they had to be mine. They still look like new because I never wore them on a daily basis. I even wore them on my wedding. They were my something old and I was comfortable.

Plus, if you know me, you know I am not a traditional kind of girl so they added a bit of my personality to an otherwise traditional wedding dress.

After having 2 children my feet have grown enough that I can no longer wear these. But I just can’t bring myself to throw them out. Maybe Miss Stalin will love them as much as I do.
