Do you have pieces of clothing in your closet that has past it's prime but you love it so much that you hold on to it?
I have a pair of sandals that I've had for about 10 years. They really were nothing special just plain nude sandals like these. I have been looking for a pair of replacement but never found the right one. So I wore them the other day and was walking back from lunch and noticed something white on the bottom of my sandals. I thought I stepped on a sticker so I lifted up my foot to peel it off. So imagine my surprise when I saw that a big chunk of the sandal was missing!
At that point, I was trying to remember if I stepped on something really sticky and it pulled my sandals apart. The sole was basically 1/2 gone. I looked at the other foot and sure enough, it was in the same state. They were in such poor shape that I could barely walk in them anymore. They literally crumbled before my eyes. Luckily, I have a ton of shoes in my office (story for another day) and tossed the old pair.
I didn't intentionally hold onto to the sandals but I got a lot of use out of them. This is the first I can say that I've worn down my shoes.
Which leads me to these pants, I've had them a couple of years and love them. I love the bold color and how comfy they are. I noticed that when they came back from the cleaners that they look a little faded.
So now I am on the fence about keeping them. What's your rule on keeping something you love even if it's past it's prime?
