Day Birger et Mikkelsen top from my-wardrobe.com,Topshop faux leather leggings and hat, Christian Louboutin heels.
What is the easiest way to place the material aspects of your life into labeled cardboard boxes?  How do you evaluate the worth of an item?  While I sit amongst piles of my “things” contemplating the value of each belonging, I wonder what causes a possession to hold sentimental meaning.  In an era where all photographs are digital, where music and films reside in our phones, and fashion can often be cheap and disposable, is anything irreplaceable?  Sometimes I wish my life was recorded in black and white, all my music needed a record player, and garments were one of a kind.  I wish my answer wouldn’t be “I would save my iPhone and Macbook in a house fire.” My cherished items include my sweetly vintage engagement and wedding rings, the pink strawberry scented teddy bear I received from the boy in our rocky dating stages, and old school scrapbooks crammed with non-digital photos.  And of course my something Versace, something Chloe, and something Dior.  What would you save?

Fab top! and nice post. I wouldn’t be worried about too many things I dont think actually, the most important thing would also be a teddy from my boyfriend! How sad! Still gutted to have lost my school leavers book πŸ™ If you lost everything you would still have people who matter and a host of memories πŸ™‚

I’m in love with your top as well, color is just perfect.
I have to agree with you, I would save my laptop first as it contains all the memories and more. Jewelry holds value to me as well, some pieces have been handed down to me and even though they’re costume, to me you can’t replace them.

The second image is my favorite.

And in a fire, I’d save my dog, Hogan. I can replace everything except that little chunk πŸ™‚
