Join me won't you, as I journey through the graveyard of my wardrobe!
From: Banana Republic
The Story: A beloved one shoulder size 4 top (whoop whoop), it combines my love for metallic and orange
Where is it now?: Packed away in a tub of clothes I won't part with, despite no longer being a B-cup.
The Story: It's the freakin weekend, baby, and that's all the reason 23-year-old Samantha needs to buy a new outfit!
Where is it now?: No clue. The color washes me out, and it's just about backless. I think I gave it away?
From: Laney's Place (a boutique in Homewood, Alabama)
The Story: A Christmas gift from my mom. I love this top!
Where is it now?: After dragging in late one night, I carelessly left this top on the floor. Puppy George chewed the shoulder. Pretty sure I cried.
The Story: Just another cute going out top that made me feel like a million bucks, but not like I'm trying too hard.
Where is it now?: Missing in Action
From: White House Black Market
The Story: My bridesmaid, Kristen, had a cute idea for me to wear white to my bachelorette party, while all my bridesmaids wear black. It was a lot of fun and the pictures turned out great. Since it was the middle of winter, these winter white pants were all I could find, and the hems were completely destroyed by the dirty floor of Mako's in Atlanta
Where is it now?: In an alteration pile at my mom's house, I think. She has repeatedly tried to stain treat these pants and may try to shorten the hem and remove the damaged fabric at a later date. I think it's a moot point now.
From: Saks Fifth Avenue (Theory)
The Story: I bought this for my bridesmaids luncheon. It now features loose and missing rhinestones and is tinged with self tanner.
Where is it now: In a bag to go to the dry cleaners for two years. As if it could be saved.
From: Saks Fifth Avenue (BCBG)
The Story: Favorite top of all time. It's beautiful silk, in just the perfect shade of green, with wooden beading.
Where is it now?: George got a hold of it and gnawed the wooden beads off and chewed the zipper at the hem. I kept it hanging in my closet for two more years after that, convincing myself that I would wear it anyway and that nobody would notice the missing beads.
From: The Auburn University Bookstore
The Story: I bought it the day before the game, right after arriving from Dallas
Where is it now? Oh, I still have it. Washing and drying this shirt was the last act of laundry I permitted Steve to do in our house. I think it would fit Laney now.
From: Arden B
The Story: There was a time when I would buy anything that was green. In 2004, camisole tops were so hot. Most people would be thrown off by a top that doesn't allow for a bra, but not me.
Where is it now?: I loved it enough to save it, but the plastic ring that adjusts the strap is broken
From: Saks Fifth Avenue (BCBG)
The Story: I can't explain this. That band across the top is fully sequined, too.
Where is it now? Tucked safely away. I now leave this sort of dressing to JWoww.
From: A boutique sale in Atlanta
The Story: As I said, there was a time when I would buy anything green
Where is it now? I hope I gave it away, it will never be appropriate for me to wear again
The Story: I needed a new top to wear on the Girls Beach Trip. This was on sale. And it was green.
Where is it now?: I gave it away to somebody who might want to look pregnant.
