I love when certain pieces of clothing hold vivid memories from the past. This printed sweater was an awesome score I grabbed at goodwill a few years ago while scouring the racks with my best friend, Amelia. She has since moved all the way to Florida, separating us in the worst way possible. At the time when I found out about her big move, there was a lot of crying (lots of blubbering, on my part) between the two of us. Hundreds of tissues and 3,000 miles later, I was friendless and alone in my thoughts. Since we were always inseparable, I managed to keep myself from befriending many other people. I’ve made friends with some phenomenal people in the few years since she moved, though I still miss her terribly. We always had a connection I’ve only shared with a couple other individuals, so I treasure the wonderful moments of our friendship greatly.
Long story short, this sweater always brings up memories of the exciting days of procrastinating on homework and instead, thrifting with my best friend. We’ve always had a talent for finding key pieces on the cheap, and this garment is a prime example.
