In the late 1970s, Debbie wore a black velvet blazer to a New Years party. Underneath, she styled a white blouse with a pink bow tie. The blazer was one of her favorites, so much so that even when she no longer wore it, she couldn't bear to get rid of it.
Fast forward twenty-something years when I discovered the black blazer, among a few other gems, hanging in a garment bag and Debbie, my mom, let me keep the blazer.
I wear this blazer all the time and what I love more than the fit and the style is that it has history. It's more than an article of clothing, but a piece that connects me with my mom when she was my age.
Do you have any pieces of clothing that have a story behind them?
