15 Day Challenge: Day 3

Linking up again with Sar over at Life of Love for her 15 Day Challenge.

Day 3: Tell about an article of clothing that you're deeply attached to.

So when I lived at home, every couple of years my mom would make us purge half of our closet for goodwill. If I had been left to my own devices, I probably would have like 70 tee shirts that I could write about because I wore them at some vacation I went on with family, etc.
But since I wasn't and I've moved a lot in the last few years, I've severed a lot of my attachment with clothes.

However, I still have two I can talk about! Aren't you excited! 

The first is a really really cheesy, not at all attractive, shirt I bought from Hot Topic. it's made like a prison shirt and it has Sirius Black's name and his wizarding prison number stamped on it and Azkaban on the back. I wore it to all the HP movies after that and to my trip to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter like two years ago.

The second one is more sentimental. My grandfather passed a few years ago and every few months or so my Gramma has a giant give-away of stuff in her house that she no longer needs (She disguises these as white elephant Christmas parties were she provides all the presents and no one wants to participate because most of it is junk). Anyway, my brother picked up this robe that belonged to my grandfather and was the one thing everyone was kind of jealous of. Apparently Grandpa Pete bought a lot of these mickey mouse robes so that when one got too frayed to use anymore he didn't have to worry about finding another one. 

Long story short, my bro passed it on to me because he knew I'd appreciate it sentimentally whereas he'd use it for a cape or something and ruin it. 


So there you go! 

Hope you're all enjoying this challenge as much as I am!


  1. Aww poor Gramma! I probably wouldn't want to participate either, though, because if it was junk I wouldn't have anything to do with it, but I'd feel guilty giving it away!
