Worn Stories

Worn Stories-1-Design Crush


I have a box full of clothing from different periods of my life – a Grateful Dead shirt from high school, my favorite baby doll tee from freshman year of college, an interview skirt from my first job search – that I just can’t seem to part with. Are you the same way? If you are, well, we’re not alone. Emily Spivack’s Worn Stories shares 60+ clothing-inspired first-person narratives that spill about the stories of our lives. (You can submit your own memory for a chance to win a copy of the book.)

    i, too, can’t wait to get my hands on it! thanks for the feature.

    i’ve tried so hard in recent years to detach myself from so many pieces of clothing and minimize what’s going on in my closet. but there are a few favorite t-shirts that i’ll never be able to part with.

    my favorite is probably a tee with mickey mouse and red, short, baseball-style sleeves. it’s a classic disneyland t-shirt that my aunt brought back to me when i was probably 3. it was ridiculous and huge then (like floor-length sleep-shirt) but i’m glad because it became a perfect ‘grown-up’ size.

    it reminds me of spending summers with my aunt and staying up late and watching “saturday night live” and eating midnight brownies.

    hope you’re well in the PA. : )

    I saw this book at the store the other day and loved it! I was just telling my daughter about my favorite fifth grade outfit: white Calvin Klein jeans and a red, white, and blue striped alligator shirt (back when alligator shirts were Izod, not Lacoste). I felt so stylish and cool in that combination. Come to think of it, I’d still wear it. Love your blog, by the way. Thanks!
