There are certain things that will stay in my closet forever, and most of them are vintage. I only bought this little cape a year and a half or so ago, but it’s one of those special standouts that will probably make the cut each time I clean out my closet. I have some vintage pieces that have stayed with me since high school, and have been known to keep some of my elementary school shirts around (ahem, NKOTB and a Margate Panthers shirt). It’s strange to think that one day we’ll look back on today’s clothing and label it “vintage” – isn’t it? Are there any pieces in your current closet that you think you’ll keep around for the long term?
