Unfortunately, it's time for this post. I've known the end was near but I didn't want to admit it. So I'm doing it here so I have to follow through on the end. What in the world is this girl talking about? (I'm sure you're asking)
I'm talking about my absolute favorite article of clothing, my green trench coat.
You see, I've had this particular coat since approximately 2000. And I know this for a fact because I purchased this coat and then proceeded to go to see Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon in the theatre with some friends. Don't ask me how I remember these silly things. But anyway, it was purchased from the Gap and I actually paid full price because I loved it that much.
Here I am wearing it yesterday. Bad lighting but it's definitely green.
Here it is back in 2001. My friend Beth and I in Maine.
And I realize this is probably a really silly thing to be blogging about but I have a theory about clothes. I don't get attached because styles change so much and I get tired of things and I figure if I have a picture of me wearing it, that's good enough. But this one, this one is gonna be tough to retire. I haven't been able to find something to replace it. It's got a zipper and snaps and it's my signature color. It's stood the test of fashion for 11 years. That's good stuff.
Do you have any article of clothing that you are attached to?
