My wardrobe may have a great assortment of designer clothes, handbags and shoes but there are two things that I love, for different reasons that no amount of money could replace. My dear Nana who always had a habit of buying second-hand clothing and accessories, for my 18th birthday (from memory) gave me a lovely clutch purse with the name Michelle written inside it. I don’t know why I haven’t ever used it (perhaps I was worried Michelle would come looking for me – asking for her clutch purse back). It has such sentimental meaning to me – I love the shape, style, beading and crystals and it’s the perfect size. So, I have decided when I am next going out, that my Clutch Purse will be coming with me. She has stayed at home for far too long.
My other precious keepsake is a pair of shoes, well really more my Chinese inspired slippers that I wore when I was a toddler. I can’t believe I would ever have fitted these, considering my feet have always been way too big. Perhaps at 2 years of age this didn’t really worry me!
My love of fashion doesn’t look like diminishing anytime soon. My wardrobe continues to bulge at the seams and I do wonder when and if the time will come when I will be content with what I have, and not always be looking for that something new. Sometimes something old is just as good.
