In preparation for the big move, the BF and I decided (really he strongly insisted) to start emptying out my closet. I just got back from a weekend in Houston with a great group of mom bloggers and friends (see Katelin and Jessica), so it proved to be a great time to clean up and toss out old clothes.
If you are like me, you keep clothes.
You keep shirts that once were in style.
You keep jeans that used to fit you and still plan on wearing them once you lose that extra weight.
You keep clothes that you only wore once because you feel bad that you wasted money.
In the beginning, I didn't think I'd have much to giveaway because I try to purge items here and there.
See closet here.
See the end result
After seven years, I finally had to part with my first ever Juicy Couture sweatpants. I bought these on a spring break in college with all my friends. Juicy had been just released and, of course, I needed to have them. Nothing says quality like a $125 terry cloth sweatpants, right?!
Love them, holes and all.
These pants have seen more places than that stupid pair of traveling pants, which was made into two movies. They've been to Acapulco, the Outerbanks two times, a few floors I'd rather forget, seven apartments, brunches at Bob Evan's, late-night McDonald's runs, girlfriend sleepovers, friends (ex)and boyfriend late night talks, holidays at my parent's house and even shopping trips with my mom where she said, "Does your ass really need to say 'juicy' on it?"
So, I said good-bye to these pants today and relived all my fond memories when I proudly wore them. I put them on for the last time and strutted around the living room, then the bf says, "Can we finally burn them?" with a smile on his face.
Are you attached to any clothes? What is it and what's your best memory wearing it?
