Vintage Denim and Hand-Me-Down Heaven

My husband calls me a hoarder.  I just say I’m “sentimental.”  Regardless, I have once again been proven correct in my assumption that some things are just worth keeping.

As a child, I was constantly given hand-me-downs (the perks of being one of the youngest family members).  As a child in the ’90s, my denim collection is… large.

While I’m currently on the search for the perfect vintage jean jacket, I have lately been obsessed with the one from Gap Kids (yes, kids!) below.  My older cousin’s name is printed on the inside, so I’m guessing he must’ve brought this thing to camp with him.  Eventually it was passed to my brother, and then to me.  Sitting in my closet for years, and years… and years, who knew I’d ever wear it again? ME.

Despite this 90s frock being a bit short, with sleeves that end just above my wrist, I find it’s baggy and shapeless silhouette to be just on trend.
