To my maroon Costume National velvet motorcycle'ish jacket... why did I have to be brushing my teeth in you and drop a giant blob of colgate on your breast pocket... UGH

I have lost every band tee I've ever owned, just about. I miss my Half Japanese "Charmed Life" and Dinosaur Jr. "Green Mind" tour shirts the most.

Phil: dry cleaning!

Pleats Please slingback sneakers in red/grey/black/brown, you are too pranged on the toe to wear any more but am I tossing you? Nuh-uh.

Moths, I hate you for everything you did to my clothes 2002-6 and I am still trying to reassure myself that you do not lay your eggs in camping equipment or dreadlocks. I am still darning holes in cashmere because of your slovenly, greedy ways.

a guy i know had all his band t-shirts in a box that his mum threw out. they were all grunge groups who had amassed grungy-band-t-shirt-chic with time.

i miss my plain zip up stretchy black hooded cardigan. it still exists, but like the guy from the start of the godfather's daughter - not beautiful anymore, and forever tainted with rueful sadness. you can only buy zip up tops with kangaroo pouches now. they are ridiculous.

Suzy, what is the secret of darning??? I need to know.

I have a bag of sweaters that I've been thinking I need to find some way to embellish with beading or etc to hide the tiny puckers of darning. But maybe I'm just doing it rong??

omg! not that jacket!

ugh, yes, that jacket. it looks either like toothpaste stain or someone shot a big load all over me. which is why im hesitant to take it to a dry cleaner and have to explain...

Most dry cleaners have seen the odd toothpaste splorch. Shyness = not like you.

My darning successes generally involve black sweaters with tiny inconvenient moth holes. You just have to be super-careful to never vary the pressure on your stitches and don't be too keen to seal the hole in like three goes. I sew an X to start, but leave a thread tail on the reverse and don't knot the initial stitch, Then I sew a square shape at an angle to the X and carefully stitch the hole closed, last poke of the needle bringing thread out the back. Cut the thread from the needle and tie off the threads in such a way that you gather the work together before knotting the threads securely. That work?

My favorite coral wool pea coat, I'll miss you, but coats that are a size too big are not keeping the cold out!

simple black wool lightweight coat with v sharp shoulders and hidden hook closure..

i still miss this coat! whoever stole it, there's no way it fit them as well. jerk.

RIP oversized pj harvey 'to bring you my love' shirt from the mid-90s. guess i got rid of it. what was i thinking?

slightly concerned that my skinny puppy t-shirt vanished in my last move. i don't really wear it and i'm not a huge fan or anything but i hope it's still around..
