Throw Back Thursday Fashion Link Up: Poppy Red Pants

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?
