    Fashion seem to be recycled and influenced by the past. I wish I had kept some of mine.

      when I was a teen ager my mother gave me all her clothes in the 60s, it fits me well, until now those mini skirts, some I have disposed of but I can still wear three of them, my waistline never changed as the mode and fashion keeps on returning......

    No...once you get past a certain age those things should remain in the past smile

    Garage Sale Fashion Shows are like that big_smile  But don't believe the promoter..
    It would take alot of courage to wear the same shoes for 20 years.. Though I guess quite sole destroying hmm

    I wish i didnt throw some of my clothes away.Clothes do not make you as a person.It only changes your appearance and what mood are in on that day.

    The fads are cycling more quickly now than a cat can lick his you know whats...

    I have a rule of thumb, since I've hit my "30 spread", a little more hips, a little more thigh, a little more junk in the trunk, if I cannot fit it, it's gotta go.  My waist hasn't really changed but even though I have a pretty good shape, I've filled out more in my woman hood than some of those trends would allow. 

    If only they made apple bottom jeans many many many years ago...

    According to me the fashion that usually they let you look good and sensual so i think but along with that one fact that should be kept in mind is that one should choose clothes according their body structure.....

    At my age, I wouldn't look good in those...well, maybe the tights. My older daughter has snagged some of my "vintage" pieces, however, and loves them.

    If I kept all the things I had as a kid, I'd be rich with valuable collectibles!

    My grandmother still has clothes from her childhood at 80! They're all hanging in a tiny antique wardrobe. That one room of the house is like stepping back in time, the rest is all quite modern.

      I would LOVE to see what your grandmother still has and the styles she wore-would be a great hub, I think.

    There are some definite fashion pieces I wished I kept from the past. But the platforms I am relieved are GONE !
    They're not coming back in style are they??

    What I really wish I had of kept is my figure from back then, lol!!! Middle age and gravity have not been so kind to me...but a big part of that is my own fault for lack of exercise and unhealthy eating habits. This subject does remind me of a quote I heard from someone one time-"Men age gracefully, women just get old". In my case as least, that seems to be true.
