It was a long time ago, but do you remember back to 2003 when burgundy velveteen jackets were in all the mall store windows? I was in my last semester of college (student teaching, agghhhh) and I decided to make my own. I still have it, still wear it. Do you have any hidden treasures from almost 10+ years ago?

Wow, such a cute outfit!! I love the colour of that jacket, goes great with the floral top. I love your bag!! Unfortunately I don't have any old items, I probably won't fit into them anyway cuz that would be from my high school times!
