Falling Apart.

I'm not a big shopper, particularly for clothes. I'm my own worst critic, I hate trying things on, and to be fair, most of the cute clothes I really like don't suit people my size - so I avoid it as much as possible. Needless to say, if I find something I love? I wear it until it quite literally starts to fall apart.

My 'wear all the time' black zip up jacket went yesterday, with the sleeve practically ripping off. One of my favourite pairs of shoes went in the bin just last week, because they had worn a hole away in the lining. And today? My 'all time favourite' dressy cardigan split down the arm. (I've had the latter for the part three years, and I'm devastated it's dead. What am I going to do without it?)

It really sucks at the moment, because the last thing that I feel like doing is clothes shopping. I'm trying to save money for my return trip back to Australia (doesn't come cheap, let me tell you!) and it's just plain annoying. I'm wondering if I can get away with what I have for at least the next couple of months, before topping up my supply back home where the dollar is cheaper...

What's your all-time favourite clothing item that you'd feel lost without?

All time favorite?!? Oh that's so hard. The jeans I'm wearing right now. The shelf-bra tank tops I wear to death. ;-)

My Michigan State sweatshirt.

Jeans. Particularly my Levis. Or that dark denim pair that make my ass look fantastic...

Maybe my Havaianas? Pretty much the only thing I put on my feet for six months out of the year.

I've got some good bras I'd hate to be without, too.

Favourite jeans. I LOVE them. They are getting so thin, the hole in the right knee has been patched and repaired but it just keeps on ripping, my poor jeans will have to be retired. They just fit me so well, whether my weight is up or down, they go with everything... I cannot throw them out.

I understand parting with beloved clothes. Clothes these days are all yuck anyway.

I'd try to make do until I could get home. BUT the remaining time would be laced with a generous helping of "I hate my clothes." Oh wait. That's already how I feel.

Short black two-pocket skirt. My go to when I don't know what to wear for work. When it dies, I will be lost. I hate shopping too.

I always have one pair of jeans I love, and then of course I wear them to rags and have to start over. I also have an old ratty hoodie I stole out of my dad's closet and wore to school every day in 11th and 12th grade and now can't bear to think of losing.
