Lace and Nostalgia

I don't know why but for some reason as of late I keep pulling pieces out of my closet I haven't worn in forever. I'm in the process of trying to find a new place to live so I think I want to see if I can incorporate them into my daily life again. And let me tell you - this dress makes me feel like a million bucks! I picked it up at Urban Outfitters my freshman year of college so I've had it for a solid 5 years. 

I remember wearing it to my first poetry slam in college where I got second place! I haven't really competed since then but I still like attending and writing the occasional poem. This dress has a lot of good memories for me and I don't know why I haven't worn it recently. But maybe that's also the magic of it; it brings back such nostalgic memories so it's nice to pull it out and remember them. I always forget that clothes can have such a nostalgia to them. I have tons in my wardrobe I can't give away because I picked it up in __ or wore it to __. even if it doesn't fir my style anymore. It's nice to remember good memories through my clothes.

My shoes are a pretty new purchase from Savers. I went to their memorial day sale (of course!) and found these gems. I'm definitely having a moment with leopard print shoes that's for sure. During the ale these were a whopping 2$ so of course I had to pick them up! I've been looking for a pair of flats with the ankle strap for a long time. I really can't wait to wear these all summer. 

Do you have any nostalgic pieces of clothing in your closet?
