In Discussions, In my closet, Style, Women

Were you ever given a piece of clothing or jewellery that especially touched you?

Yes… in fact.

My mother spent 6 months upon my high school graduation, making me a gorgeous, beaded necklace that had my initials in it, the date I graduated and in a design that I picked.

She beaded it by hand, and then presented it to me wrapped in tissue paper. I still have it, and I don’t wear it, but I have it tucked away in their house (I have yet to go back home to pick it up so I can display it).

The second item for clothing was a gorgeous dress my godmother gifted to me from her closet when I was a little girl.

Pure silk, in the deepest of colours and flowers. I couldn’t wear it then and still can’t wear it now (it’s too small but maybe it is okay now), but I have it, and I would like to cherish it forever.

You just can’t find that kind of beadwork and quality these days.

What about you?

Sherry of Save. Spend. Splurge.

I got out of $60,000 of debt in 18 months using TheBudgetingTool.com. Since then, I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K (savings rate = 85%). I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.
