Treasured Piece

Top: Shop Frankie's, Pants: YSL, Heels: Zara, Clutch: Celine, Earrings: old love these!, Sunnies: Ray Ban

There are a few pieces in my closet that I treasure dearly and
that carry some serious sentimental value. These pants definitely
fall right into that category! They were given to me 15 years ago from
a very special woman by the name of Theresa who took care of me when I was little.
And um, let me just tell you people....she had a collection of clothes, designer
shoes (especially Ferragamo) and bags that would make you go weak at the knees!

When she passed away, her husband gave me these pants and her favorite gold
bracelet as a gift to remember her by. Although I don't wear these pants too often,
when I do wear them I am instantly reminded of her and how she wore them with such
grace 20 years ago and I can't help but feel a little nostalgic. I can only hope I wear them
as well as she did!

I don't usually get sappy but its always nice to hear the
stories behind old vintage pieces, so I thought I would share mine!

Do you have any stories of treasured pieces you have?
Please share!

Wow, such a lovely story about the pants!
I have a couple things like that. The two rings I wear every day were my mom's when she was younger. I also have some sweaters my Grandmother knitted (she passed away 12 years ago)

Aww that's such a sweet story. I have a ring my mother gave me that I have the same sentimental value towards. She really liked the ring, but thought I would like it more since she never wore it.

Love the bright pumps with the white trousers :)

Have you heard of weebly.com to build your own website, and they also sort out your domain name? I use them for my business website. I’m a newbie to all the www has to offer, but using them to build a professional looking website was so easy. There are different packages too, depending on how sophisticated you want/need to be.
