How wonderful it is to see the old be reinvented into the new.. the way it can be transformed but still has an essence, a story of what once was within it's new found self. I adore how fashion trends come back season & season again, some I'm not too fond of and should be stored away for ever.. but some that you just get really excited about and see boutiques stocking styles from the past.
I readily admit I am a bit of a hoarder.. I do have the occasional clean out where I toss away things I don't need, send them away to charity stores or sell some things at the markets as I need more space for the new. But the things that I have kept for years now I always hope that they will be back in fashion and a lot of it usually does. I wish that my Mum kept a lot of her fashions from back when she was younger as it all just circles back and gets revived, recycled & reinvented.
I recently picked up the new Harpers Bazaar Australia magazine that features baby faced Miranda Kerr on the cover looking straight out of the 70's which I love! I haven't been a fan of the flared pant for years now.. but if I find the right pair I may even give them a go!
Hold onto good quality items that you feel great in when you wear them; for example jeans, jackets, blazers, shoes, boots, jewellery, sunglasses. If you really love them & can see yourself wearing them in a years time then keep them.. if you aren't that passionate about an item I say toss it as you'll probably never wear it again & if that style does come back you may find a piece you are passionate about and can keep in your faves pile for years to come.
