Favorite Things #32
Years and years ago, I saw a list of classic, quality pieces that were suggested for having a solid, timeless wardrobe for a lifetime. As you may remember, I LOVE lists! I also love well made, quality items so I determined that I would set out to slowly build a wardrobe consisting of some of these pieces. Many of them were out of my price range, so I saved or asked for the items for Christmas/birthdays. Sixteen years later, I've acquired a fair amount of the items (and determined some weren't really for me) and I can honestly say that each one are workhorses and will probably never go out of style.
One of the first items I received on my list were Hunter Wellies and I was thrilled when my Mom gave them to me for Christmas! I have worn them for the past 15 years and they are still going strong! During those years, Hunters definitely became a little more fashionable (when they added colors to the line) but, unfortunately, manufacturing was also moved to China. I'll admit, I love that mine say, "Made in Scotland!" I can never get rid of them now- but I wouldn't want to anyway!
