Eternal city, eternal life, eternity, we know it all, but the eternal skirt? What should this be? A canonized skirt, or what? Well, nearly right.
I also didn’t know that I am owning an eternal skirt for a long time. And then I got a message from a reader, who asked me, if I have the skirt from the post about the fortress of Blaye in different sizes. She noticed, that it appears in many posts and some of them are already years old. She was right and I was surprised how attentive my readers are. So I went down into the depths of my image archive and searched for pictures of my skirt from the Italian brand „I Pinco Pallino“ and noticed, that he is with me for so long. It is exactly the same skirt every time.
And that’s how my „I Pinco Pallino“ skirt became the eternal skirt. 😉
There are clothes, which accompany me for very long and it really hurts, if they are too small one day. But this skirt already lasts eternally. It grows with me and it made the skip from beloved children skirt to the favorite piece of the teenager wardrobe. I Pinco Pallino is originally a childrens‘ brand. We bought the skirt in this now left shopping center in the Tuscany. The shopping center is closed for a very long time already, but my eternal skirt is still pretty. And very comfy. A piece I really like to take out of my wardrobe. And often, as you can see on those tons of pictures of my blog.
Many posts in which my eternal skirt appeared already. I don’t even know if I really discovered all. Maybe you find some more. We cpuld do a search game:
Find the eternal skirt. 😉
Yes, and because you don’t only want to see old pictures, I have some pics from Bordeaux for you. And what did I wear there? Right, the ternal skirt.
My eternal skirt is durable and pretty – A right step to slow fashion
What I wanted to tell you with this post, is very easy: Not the short-lived pieces make us happy. No, we need the fave pieces, which experience many things with us, like a very good friend. We don’t only look for a friend for one summer, do we?
And the great thing about it is, that it is good for the environment, and also safes money. Of course you have to look for the quality of pieces, you want to wear very long and it does cost more then, when you buy it. But finally you shop calmly and if you use the „Coast per wear“ -principle, you saved money at the end. Why should we buy a fashionable trapping for 40 €, if we only wear it five times in two years and somehow don’t like it anymore after a short time. Finally the wearing costs are much too high for this.
So think about your next purchase. Style is not about the tons of clothes in your wardrobe, it is about quality and combinations. And less pieces means less cleaning up. Reasonable shopping belongs to growing up. Finally we have to pay for everything some day and I don’t only mean clothes, but all these environmental sins, we have to iron out in the future.
Less is more sometimes…
