In the ongoing Blog Carnival hosted by Trisha of Momdot, this weeks instructions were to go through your closet and show the 5 worst fashion blunders that you own. I have to confess, that I wear three out of five of these regularly. There is one piece of clothing in my closet, though, that I never wear, but just can not bring myself to get rid of.
I was a Girl Scout Leader for 8 years, from 1983until 1991. I got this patch jacket the first year. I have patches from every place our Girl Scout Troop went during that time.
I have added pins and buttons to it since then, souvenirs of the places I have traveled. The dang thing clicks when I walk if I ever wear it, which is every once in a while to just try it on.
This jacket represents so many memories that even though it is 29 years old, I can not toss it out. I will probably still have it when I go to my grave.
Next up is a beaded vest that I have owned since about 1985. It is one of the things I wear sometimes and just can’t bring myself to get rid of. It might look tacky to some, but it is me. Yeah, I claimed it.
I wear this with a pair of black slacks and brown sweater. It looks decent, but yeah, it’s 1985.
I bought this purple rhinestone studded vest in March when I went to a quilt show with my sister-in-law. It may not be so fashionable, but hey, it has RHINESTONES, and I LOVE me some rhinestones.
And in case you can’t see them, here is a close up:
Next up, the skort. I wear it, well at least I did pre-surgery. It doesn’t feel comfortable now, but I’m keeping it until it does.
And last, this awful tie dyed shirt from Wal-Mart. What was I thinking?
And here is the whole outfit, modeled for you:
So, what are you hiding in your closet?
