OUT WITH THE OLD

How many of you hold on to certain items (sometimes people) even when it is falling apart?
...Till death do us part right?





I'm definitely that kind of person. If I find something good I hold on forever, even till the last days. This purse was purchased from H & M many many years ago. It broke for the first time two years ago when I was jumping in a bouncy castle (don't ask) lol. I just sewed it back together and kept it pushing. 



Later the front zipper started to get jammed more and more frequently making it difficult to close but then I just avoided using that part of it for a while. Well this weekend at work this bag was just like ...PLEASE JUST LET ME GOOOOO! The strap popped off as I was doing my model walk into work. (Talk about embarrassing).


So I replaced it with this. Again from H & M. Hopefully this sees as many years and the last one. :)

  1. Thanks Maggie for sharing this with the rest of us bloggers. I think I'm the clingy type too... But I heard that I must let go of the old things in order to get new ones. Great post!!!

    PS.
    I love the replacement.

  7. great bags, I also own so much old stuff that I can't seem to get away from, but maybe it's time to get rid of some of the things and replace them, just like you did:)

  11. Oh I am right there with you, I hold on to purses and shoes WAY too long! I don't even know why, because they aren't hard to replace. Same with plain old t-shirts that I got from schools I went to, or vacations or wherever, they're all faded but there's something sentimental and I just can't put them in the Good Will bag! Haha

    I love than new H&M bag you got - it looks like the perfect size and I love the skinny strap!

    1. I literally had to just throw out a bunch of old white Ts today because I've had them for so long some even had makeup stains in really awkward places where there was no makeup lol (TMI?)

  12. I'm like that with a top man Shirt I bought three years ago, Its tartan and I just fell in love with, it's starting to get a bit old, but it's still good!!
    Its the first thing I ever purchased after I saved up.

    Btw Maybe I need glasses but I can't read the font on your blog... I'm not saying change it but it might not be only me. Hope I'm not sounding rude :/
