This Old Robe - and shoes too!

Should I be ashamed to admit that I have had this robe since about 1985? It is from Macy's and is the Jennifer Moore brand. I used it alot for the first 4 years but then only sometimes. It is still in pretty good shape except for a little fraying around part of the collar. I've only used it for showertime the past 10 years. I hate to get rid of it. If it gets too bad I will though. Mom had one exactly like it in green. It's been at least 12 years since she got rid of hers.

I also still have the pair of shoes that I got in sophmore year of high school back in 1984. I saw a pair like them in Seventeen or Young Miss magazine and just had to have them. I couldn't find a pair with the laces but they did have one with velcro. They are Ciao brand. I wore them alot that year and a little junior year and haven't really worn them since probably the late 80's. I just can't seem to part with them though. Is that weird?

What is the oldest article of clothing, footwear or accessories that you have?

I still have my Levi's denim jacket I bought in 1983. It's in great condition. I have pictures of me wearing it when I used to have a big perm like Jennifer Beals in Flashdance.

Hi, Marissa-
That is so cool. You actually reminded me of the fact that I too still have my Levi's denim jacket and a leather jacket from the mid 1980s and that I was getting perms back then too. I hope that you are having a great day.
