The older the better
sweater - Banana Republic, skirt - Gap, tights - Winners, shoes - Joie, necklace - Joe Fresh
I love that clothing from Gap Inc. always (at least within the last 10 years) includes the year and season the item came from. I have this habit of checking the tag before I wear any Gap, Banana Republic, or Old Navy clothing. The older the item, the happier it makes me. It sort of solidifies that this _fill_in_the_blank_ was a good buy.
This particular sweater is one of the older pieces in my wardrobe and came from "FALL | 05" -- so a good five+ years ago. The sweater is a great classic, but the details -- blouson sleeves and sweetheart-ish neckline -- make it interesting. I'm sure this sweater will be in rotation for a good number of years.
