Another quote: It's what you learn after you know it all that counts. -John Wooden, basketball coach


"Clothes are imprinted with stories and memories of the things that happened to us when we wore them and when you shake out that Ossie Clark, or feel the knock of the pennies you stitched into the hem of your circular skirt, doesn't it all come back?

And don't fall into thinking that vintage is just dressing "secondhand", it isn't. ... it's important to remind yourself that if something smells of mothballs it's because it's been loved and cared for." Vintage clothes are full of stories, says this article about a recent book on the subject.
