I dont have my old clothes anymore as I put so much weight on at one point I couldnt fit in them anymore! I thought I would never lose weight and so I got rid of them all, then a few years later I lost all my weight so then I had to get rid of the bigger clothes I had bought because they were huge on me. Maybe I should have kept them though just in case I put the weight back on!!

there are some outfits and garments that are timeless and classic. I have a few dresses that I still wear from 15 years ago. There are also somethings from my young adult hood that I could just not part with, and occasionally take them out of the trunk and wear them. Its fun to wear clothes that make your children cringe with shame of you:)))

Yes of course if it still fits and is still in good condition why not and most fashions come back round again even though I tend to buy more classic styles that don't date anyway. Any that I am really fed up with but are still good quality I pass on to someone else or put to a charity shop and any worn out go to recycling box. I have a skirt in the wardrobe that I have had for years but with a different blouse and shoes looks like a new outfit. Ellie:)

I dont think i have any clothes left that fit from way back then.. I gave them all away. I used to be a size 3 and then i had a baby, and just as i was able to get back into the size 5 clothes that i had from gaining a little weight, PF I got preggo again. So EVERYTHING went, and whatever size i end up in after the baby is born is what i'll buy in clothes! lol. I usually buy most of my clothes second hand, cause i can't fathom spending 50$ on one thing. or more for jeans. that is ludacris, if i had to i'd be walking around nakey cause i couldnt afford to dress myself!

I ususally keep my clothes until I decide they are too worn out to wear anymore. I still have a could things from when I stopped grwoing at the age of 12 and I am now 26, hahahaha. However if I decide that i no longer like something I will usually get rid of it or give it away or use the material for something becuase I buy my clothes either on sale or at the local thift shop, so I don't spend much on the at all. That way when I want something new it's not hard to afford it.

Sure, I don't like wasting and I am also comfortable to wear old clothes. I have some old clothes with good look anyway. So sometimes when I wear some old clothes, my husband will think they are new clothes. I am sure he doesn't have an idea what clothes I have:)

i have one dress which is ten years back one and it suits me,now also .it is in good condition upto now and if i wear, my husband also praises me, as he has increased weight in this ten years and i am not gained weight in this 10 years. so that dress fits me now also. he will be jealous of my dress and me also.

I still wear some of them because they are not out of trend. Dresses like simple black and white or plain t-shirts are OK to wear. However, those clothes that I bought due to the 'in trend' at that time is totally OUT and funny to wear out now e.g t-shirts with prints of "school of 1998" etc. However, i still wear those at home when I am not going out.

Dear friend, I would some times it makes me soo funny and if that clothes are not given to any, I would often give my old clothes to orphans. But those good ones I do wear even if it is old. Not only for some clothes have much attachments as it is brought for me for my birthdays or given by someone special to me as my uncle gave a jeans which he brought from Singapore which is rare in our place and my uncles expired few years back. Hence I would keep those clothes which is special to me and some times I do wear old clothes.

You bet i do! I think that when we find something we really like we should buy several. They wear out, you can never find the same thing again. It is so depressing. (;

wearing old down feather clothes to stay warm - This is the down clothes bought in 1990 and it is still so nice and beautiful to wear. I love it very much and it has been kept in the wardrobe for so many years without being taken out to wear till 2008, when it was snowing and freezing.
Hello dear marketing friend. To begin with, I think that some old-style clothes could be in fashion again years later, so I keep some of my old clothes in the wardrobe and I will be very happy to still wear it when I am happy to. Well, I have a very good down feather clothes for winter, especially for snowy and freezing and very windy weather when the temperature drops to zero or so. Here is one of the photos of my old down feather clothes which was bought in 1990 and still so good in shape and quality. This winter I took it out to wear as it was especially cold this winter, windy and snowy. I feel proud of my old down feather clothes when it could be worn again to keep me warm from cold and wind. Thanks very much for your discussion.
