.......item you'll never sell?

I know many of us buy and sell items on egl - problably one way or other we end up wearing each other's clothes, so I was wondering if there was any item you'll never sell? As in never ever sell?


I'll problably never sell my Alice Chess and Fairywish skirts. It's weird because they're both black, and I love colour. Alice Chess because it's the first thing I ever saw from any lolita magazine - I remember it was ROCOCO 1# and they had this adorable winter? coordinate and when I saw it, I thought "Wow! That's gorgeous" although it took me around 4 years because I actually got *into* lolita, had enough money, stalked Y!J and bought it. It also happens to be my favourite casual skirt, since it basically matches *anything*. Sounds vaguely like loli-crime, but I've worn the skirt with school PE shirts, band shirts, tank tops....etc etc.

For Fairywish, it was the "love-at-first-sight" and it sparkles!<3! And the first time I actually wore it, I felt like magic - prettier, taller, skinnier (all of which are usually untrue) As though I could stroll into a ballroom, drink some tea and crook my finger elegantly while at it. I actually felt like I become a better person/wanted to be a better person while wearing it...it was a totally amazing experience. I never knew that clothes could actually do that to you. Also, it happens to be the first item I ever bought using my first paycheck ^^ in a way, it's quite sentimental as well.

So what's your never-to-sell item? Any stories? I'm curious!
