Everything and nothing is special about this outfit. If you just glance at it, you probably recognize pieces you’ve seen on RC before (I blame Christmas spending for no new clothes!). Yes, they are styled a little differently, but otherwise, nothing too special, at least to you the reader. But to me, a lot of things in this picture are special. The woods where we took these photos are my Grandmother’s, the same woods I grew up playing in and the same spot where I saw my first snowy owl. The fur hat was the first gift Mr.RC ever gave me. The bright gloves were made in Nepal (a place where my husband lived for a few years when he was younger) and bought by my in-laws in the Bryant Park Christmas pop-up shops. And the boots were a special purchase for my first trip to Canada a couple of years ago with my husband and his family. In the world of fashion (blogging or otherwise), we are always so quick to move onto the next thing, the latest trend, what everyone else is wearing, etc that we sometimes forget to value the pieces we already have. These pieces may be long gone from stores, but their special memories will always remain with me.
Do you have any pieces in your closet that hold a special meaning to you?
