As an avid thrift store shopper, I have a number of tried and true shops I always hit up when seeking a vintage fix. However, one of my favorite spots to “shop” is right in my mother’s closet. Aside from the obvious financial benefit in shopping Mother Dearest’s closet, I find endless sentimental value in breathing new life into clothes my mother sported back in her heyday.
Tucked away in the depths of her closet are pieces she donned on some of her most joyous of days and the twinkle of nostalgia in her eyes upon my slipping into one of these impeccably-kept pieces is enough to get the waterworks going.
Earlier this year, I found this skirt in my mother’s closet that she purchased back in 1981… I was born in 1985, making it my senior!
If you have yet to shop your mother’s closet, I encourage you to take a look and see what treasures lie waiting to be rediscovered!
