Old Favourite Things

I was rooting through my sister's cluttered wardrobe trying to find something when I re-united with some of my old favourite things, now handed down to her and clearly not loved as much seeing as they were amidst all the mess...

I used to be Pucca crazy-stationary, tops, socks, bags, I collected a lot. I remember (when I went through that stage where you're still a kid, but you're becoming a teenager and it's all a bit awkard)carrying this Pucca handbag proudly on my first few shopping trips with friends and no mum.


Ahhh, my white rah-rah skirt*. The ruffles were the delight. From my favourite shop of the time, 915 at New Look. I remember summers of this skirt teamed with turquoise vests, my frizzy 13 year old hair and braces. I would post pictures but I'd have to point and laugh at myself and that seems a bit mean to my gawky old self.


The little checked milkmaid dress. I wore a lot of checked dresses when I was younger. I actually found an old Monsoon one and chopped it up to thigh length the other day. I'll show you soon but I need to work on it. ;) I love seeing the old photos of me and my mum. Found a lovely one the other day- her with a stylish 80s/90s look-a headscarf in her, a big knit jumper with a belt and red leggings, me in a matching red jumpsuit.


These are just a few checked dresses i wore back in the day.

Don't you love how your old favourite things bring back memories?



* I'm still coming to terms with the fact that rah-rahs can look stylish, see 80s vintage. I think it must just be the overload of chubby chavettes in my town wearing them the past couple of years.

I have to agree with you, finding old favourite things is almost like looking through old photographs...It's such a nostalgic feeling~~

aww! That little plaid jumper is adorable!

Unfortunately, my parents handed down almost all of my old clothes to a family friend, so I dont have any from when I was little =[

That bag is too sweet. I still wear a sweatshirt from when I was little and it has a cool, bold girl scout graphic on it.

Oh that bag is so adorable!
I got a Polaroid for Christmas and it brought back so many memories from my childhood - I didn't have one back then, but I always wanted a Spice Girls one. Lol.
Great post!

Cute handbag and dresses. They desses look reminiscent of the gorgeous ones my mum used to make me.

I especially love rifling through diaries, letters or photo albums and just remembering...
