Substantial Frivolity

"You're considered superficial and silly if you are interested in fashion, but I think you can be substantial and still be interested in frivolity." - Sofia Coppola

So this Mumford and Sons Tshirt is four years old, and reminds me of an amazing summer when I didn't actually leave Ireland at all but still did a shit ton of amazing things, one of them being the Mumford and Sons concert (and a whoooole load of other unreal bands) in Phoenix Park in the roooasting heat with amazing friends, and paying an extortionate amount of money for this tshirt at the end of the show because we were on such a high (tl:dr - concert was great, bought a tshirt). 
The shirt over it is from a Swedish flea market I went to one Sunday when I was studying in Vaxjo and having the time of my life, and I wore this shirt to absolute death over there. The hat was a birthday gift from a lovely corridor-mate at that same time in Sweden, for my 22nd birthday which I spent with a big ole bunch of buddies and some good old fashioned ugly Christmas sweaters. 2013 was the bomb.com.
Basically, a lot of my clothes have some seriously good (or bad) memories attached to them. Of course, a lot of things are also just like "thanks hun, Penneys", but then you wear it somewhere, on a first date, to an interview, on your birthday - and you will always associate it with that event, it doesn't matter if it's Primark, second hand or freakin Chanel! 
What I'm trying to say is, I don't know about you, but for me clothes actually mean a lot more than staying warm or showing off or being shallow. Ever since I read that Sofia Coppola quote, it's been something I live by!
