Fun Monday # 10


I'm delighted to say I've been asked to follow Tristan in hosting the next Fun Monday. I'm secretly rather pleased to have been asked as I've had an idea which I wanted to share with you all. I love blogging because I'm interested (some would say nosey) in people and their lives so I thought how about a delve into our wardrobes. Before you switch off hear me out....

I would like to see a photo of a vintage item of clothes- it might be something that has been in your wardrobe for ever, that you can't bear to part with and the story behind it. If you are someone who regularly de-clutters your wardrobe every season don't worry you can tell us about any current favourite item of clothes. I hope you enter this challenge as I think it will be fun.

If you are going to wow us with your panache please let me know and if you could pass the word around to join in I would appreciate it. Thank you

Okay - count me in. Can I use my husband's vintage clothing? (I tend to de-clutter my own closet but my husband can keep something around FOREVER)....heh heh

 
At 28/3/07 08:47, Blogger ChrisB said...

karmyn good idea whatever takes your fancy- I bet I could give everyone a laugh if I looked in my hubby's wardrobe most of his is vintage (that he can no longer fit into)!!

It is true that I do have a number of quite expensive suits in my wardrobe but not more than 7 or 8. You should have a look in the floor to celing wall to wall wardrobes of the other half. Love
