From the Back of Mom's Closet.




My favorite place to "shop" at: my mom's closet.
My mom's closet is full of treasures. They're usually hidden away, partly because my mom is not exactly keen on the idea of me taking her clothes and never giving them back. Go figure, right? 

The thing is- my mom has an endless amount of garments from the early 90's, back when she immigrated to Israel. She can still recall all the stores she loved to visit while living as a twenty-something year old in Jerusalem. Can you really blame me for wanting to get my hands on all those clothes that were imported from France and Italy way before I was a living and breathing creature so badly? 


The cardigan and the scarves in the images above were found while we were unpacking a few boxes that were collecting dust in our previous apartment. My mom said they were bought while she was on vacation near the Baltic sea over 20 years ago. 



You might have seen this in a previous outfit post. It's not as old as the cardigan and the scarves, but old enough that my mom forgot of its existence. And now, it shall be mine until the end of times (or at least until I find another bag to obsess over). 

Have you started shopping for the colder seasons? 

Love, Alona

  1. Haha I love raiding my mum's stuff! I've poached quite a few of her old things, to be fair she doesn't wear them anymore.

  6. It's so awesome to be able to repurpose your mom's old clothing as vintage pieces you can mix in to your current wardrobe. Jealous!
