HulaGirlAtHeart wants us to show "topic….clothing…specifically clothing you can’t get rid of. We all have at least one or two items of clothing that we can’t part with, even if we can’t or don’t wear them. I want to know about yours".
Here I have a big problem because I don't keep anything in my wardrobe what I don't wear. As soon as I am fat up of something I give it away. I didn't keep my wedding dress as so many women do, I had transformed it into a white cocktail dress and worn it for sometime. The veil had belonged to my best girl friend and after the wedding I gave it back.
The only things I kept during all these years are my son's little Hippie vest when he was 2 years old in 1975 and his christening costume. We had postponed the christening to May so he was already 9 months old. I remember that he hit the priest on the head with his candle. The clothes are quite big but he was already very tall as a baby. Today he mesures 2 m (6.6 ft).
I put the cat inside to show the vest's size
This little suit is made out of blue velvet and had a white portuguese lace collar which I don't find anymore. It was offered to him by his portuguese Godmother.
And that is all I can show
