Can you believe in bought this dress in 1995? It’s been in rotation in my closet ever since. At the time, I was straight out of university so I needed an interview dress. After I landed a job, I wore it to the office on a regular basis. There have been years where it’s gone unworn, but I always return to this lucky dress.
Dress: Le Chateau
I’ve even worn this as a jacket by unbuttoning it and layering it over trousers and a sweater or a shift dress. It has a retro feel but is apparently a timeless piece.
Have you kept items in your closet so long that they’re almost vintage?

Very stylish! I totally approve!
Oooh, I think you look stunning and that dress is simply gorgeous! Definitely a lucky piece. I wish I could say I have clothes from years ago, but I do wear mine until they are threads – literally. I just threw away my oldest t-shirt (which I l-o-v-e-d) because… well, I just couldn’t go out in public wearing ’tis anymore! 😉
A timeless outfit for sure!
I have clothes from the 60s and 70s (I think you wore one my outfits for Hallowe’en!). Yes, some are dated, but there are a few I still wear. Funny how some clothes stand the test of time while others look ridiculous the next season.
My mom taught me to hold onto clothes because they will always come back in style if you wait long enough. Problem is – closet space! However, if there is something that has good memories and you like it but don’t wear it, make sure it’s clean and then pack those things away in a trunk – cedar if possible. It will be a time capsule for the future, a treasure chest to open some day and either wear again or for your children (or grandchildren) to play dress-up!
Great piece! I love items that can be styled many ways.
