I saw this tag on Leighannsays' Youtube channel and thought it would be fun to participate.

1. What is the oldest item in your wardrobe/closet?
That's hard to say. I've purchased vintage items, in the past, but I will answer this with items I've owned the longest. I have a few pieces from the mid 90's that I wore in jr. high school. I don't know which is the oldest though. As you can see, I had a slight obsession with plaid skirts.

2. What is the newest item?
That would be the vintage Betsey Johnson poppy slip dress. I'm a HUGE fan of Sarah Michelle Gellar & love her role as Kathryn in Cruel Intentions so it seemed like the right move. lol

I also purchased this super cute Juicy Couture dress, but it hasn't arrived yet. The dress reminded me a little bit of the vintage Jane Mayle jumper I really like so I thought it would make a pretty cute alternative (since the Jane Mayle piece is pretty much impossible to obtain since it is uber popular and adored by pretty much all Mayle devotees).

I managed to have the winning bid on the Juicy Couture dress at $20. Woot! And despite being sold in stores about 7 years ago, it is still unworn with tags. Woot! The one I won looks just like the picture below except mine is the alternate darker gray version (which I like more).

3. What is the most expensive item?
That would probably have to be my Diane Von Furstenberg wrap dress from her Fall 2000 collection. I totally love the abstract pattern & have always wanted to own a classic DVF wrap so I totally splurged haha. It was worth it though. I REALLY like this dress. I had to do quite a bit of digging to track it down. :)

4. What is the cheapest/most affordable item? (that you wear/use a lot!)
My American Eagle plaid shirt. Whenever I am in a hurry (or just having a lazy day), and need to grab something, I reach for this shirt.

5. What was the biggest bargain?
My Elizabeth & James Tulip dress. I ADORE this dress! It's simply beautiful and great quality. The dress is 100% silk and is designed by the designer label Elizabeth & James (which I just recently learned was owned by Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen).

The dress originally retailed for $495 on Shopbop, but I was able to find one, that was second hand and in excellent condition, for a lot less. I can't remember how much I paid, but I know it wasn't an outrageous amount. I think I only paid $50 or $60.

6. What was the biggest waste of money?!
This is a hard one, because I've cut back on my spending so whatever I do purchase is put to good use. I had some expensive purchases I've made in the past, that I never wore, but those have all either been donated or sold on Ebay.

BONUS QUESTION - Show three favorite items right now!
So many pieces to choose from! lol. But if I had to limit it to three, these are the items I pick (in no particular order). Rag & Bone, Rebecca Taylor and Clover Canyon never fail to produce amazingly beautiful pieces!
